Ground beef and spicy chorizo are combined in these grilled nacho sliders that are topped with queso dip, salsa and jalapeños!
Being born and raised an Oklahoma girl, there’s not much I love more than a cheeseburger and queso dip.
In Oklahoma if you order queso, you’re basically ordering a nacho cheese dip. I found out very quickly when I moved to San Diego that California Mexican restaurants consider queso something totally different.
Ground chicken is combined with buffalo sauce, spices & vegetables to create perfect buffalo chicken burgers topped with buffalo blue cheese sauce.
It’s been a record-breaking 3 months since I posted a recipe involving one of my favorite ingredients, the almighty buffalo sauce… I would say it’s time for a reappearance!
Here for you today is the ultimate Buffalo Chicken Burger.
Combining all the amazing elements that we think of when daydreaming about the combination of buffalo sauce and chicken, from celery and carrots to blue cheese, this burger encompasses it all (and just in time for football season might I add!)
Get step by step directions & photos for how to make this recipe below, or watch how to make it on my web series “29 Minute Meals”!
1 lb ground chicken
1 celery stalk (finely chopped)
1 carrot stick (peeled and shredded)
1/2 red onion (finely chopped)
1 garlic clove (crushed)
1/2 cup franks red-hot buffalo sauce
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1/4 cup blue cheese dressing
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
6 hamburger buns
red bell peppers (diced)
green onions (diced)
Combine the ground chicken, celery, carrots, red onion and garlic in a large mixing bowl.
Add the egg, 1/4 cup buffalo sauce, bread crumbs, chili powder and paprika.
Form into 6 patties.
Place on the grill over medium heat for 8-10 minutes per side.
While the burgers are on the grill combine the additional 1/4 cup buffalo sauce with 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing.
Toast the buns, then spread the mixture onto each side of the bun.
Remove the burgers from the grill and place onto the bun. Top with the blue cheese crumbles and any desired additional ingredients.
These buffalo chicken burgers are super flavorful and pack a bit of a punch while the blue cheese cools down the spiciness and adds a layer of creaminess.
I served these scrumptious buffalo chicken burgers with Buffalo Potato Salad for the ultimate buffalo sauce filled dinner!
