Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe

These homemade buffalo chicken wraps are excellent. Honey and lime juice help tone down the hot wing sauce for a refreshing zip. They’re perfect for lunch or a light summer meal with a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade. –Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida

"Really good! Instead of making the homemade blue cheese, I served prepared ranch and blue cheese on the side since we have a divided house."

"Excellent! quick and easy meal. Have also used romaine leaves and whole wheat tortillas. Also, reduced the hot sauce so it's not too spicy for the kids."
