Easy Buffalo Sauce:

We love buffalo sauce so I knew I had to learn how to make it from scratch. Homemade Buffalo Sauce is made with 5 simple ingredients, including hot sauce, to add to many different recipes such as buffalo wings. We use it a lot with our chicken wings, chicken breast or as a dipping sauce.

Making homemade sauces and seasonings saves me time and money. You can easily adjust the seasoning to your preference.

These Meatballs work great with the store bought buffalo sauce too. Use what works for your family.

Recipe Tips:

  • Sauce – If your sauce is to thin, you can always add in more cornstarch to make it thicker.
  • Red Pepper Flakes – We like to add a little spice to the sauce you can add in red pepper flakes. It adds so much flavor.
  • Meatballs – Make your own meatballs with bread crumbs or use any type frozen meatballs if you prefer. We used frozen chicken meatballs in this recipe but you can use any flavor.
  • Instant Pot – You can make this recipe in the Instant Pot if you prefer.
  • Mixing Ingredients – You can add the ingredients straight to the slow cooker or you can mix them in a large bowl and then add them.
  • Slow Cooker Recommendation – If you are needing a good crock pot, we recommend this Instant Pot Aura. It has many functions, but we really love that you can program the slow cooker.

  1. Where do you find frozen chicken meatballs? I haven’t seen these before. They sound delicious, though!!

  2. As others have asked, when do you add the cornstarch and water? It’s listed as an ingredient but no instructions for it in the recipe directions.

  3. I’m sorry about that – I’ll update the recipe. I mix those 2 ingredients together to make a cornstarch slurry and then stir it into the crock pot for the last hour of the cooking time. Thank you!
