READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 8 tacos


  • 1 12
    tablespoons butter
  • 14
    cup Frank's red hot sauce
  • 3
    cups shredded roasted chicken
  • 8
    (6 inch) crunchy taco shells, warmed (or corn tortillas)
  • 2
    cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • blue cheese, crumbles
  • sliced green onion, garnish
  • creamy blue cheese dressing, garnish (optional)
  • sliced celery, garnish (optional)


  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, stir together the hot sauce and butter until the butter melts and emulsifies into the hot sauce. Add the shredded chicken and stir to coat. Heat it in the sauce for a few minutes, stirring constantly, just until the chicken is heated through. Don't over cook or the sauce will separate.
