  • In a large bowl, whisk together butter and hot sauce until fully incorporated. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3 days.


  1. Hot sauce: I love Frank's Red Hot sauce but feel free to choose your favorite.
  2. Yield: This recipe makes 6 tablespoons of homemade Buffalo Sauce, enough to sauce at least 2 pounds of wings.
  3. Storage: Store extra buffalo sauce in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Be sure to discard any that was tossed with wings, though.
