A simple yet deliciously flavorful casserole that pretty much invented itself one evening in my kitchen!

This was a great base casserole to play off of...I always look to add more vegetables so I played on the buffalo chicken and added shredded carrot and chopped celery as well as chopped red pepper. Instead of the "cream of" I did a roux with part milk, part broth and added blue cheese dressing (instead of ranch) and the hot sauce to it. Easy and fun
