Buffalo Chicken Tacos

My husband and I came up with the idea to make Buffalo Chicken Tacos after eating something very similar at On the Border.  Not to sound snobby, but we think our version tastes way better! :)  These tacos are such an easy thing to make and they take no time at all.  A perfect dinner after a busy day.  The element that makes these so delicious (besides the tasty hot wing sauce) is the flat bread.  I've never had a problem finding it at the grocery store and it's usually around the pita bread.
Here's what you need:

Chicken
Hot Wing Sauce
Onion
Blue Cheese
Flat Bread
Here's how you make them:
Cook the chicken, then add a generous amount of hot wing sauce.  Make sure the chicken is thoroughly covered in sauce and set aside.

Next, add the sliced onion to the same pan.  I add a little bit of sugar, then cover and cook at a low heat until the onions are translucent.

The final step...
Slightly heat the flat bread then top with chicken, onions, and blue cheese.  If you wish to add an extra kick, drizzle some more hot wing sauce on top of everything.

And there you have it!  A Buffalo Chicken Taco.  Yum!

Ok yum!!! This is perfect. I love the addition of the carmelized onions. Hubby doesn't like blue cheese so I'll switch his out for feta or goat cheese. It'll still be really good! Thanks for the recipe!!!
