{Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps}

**Updated 7/15/2015 for the weekly menu post!**
I first shared this recipe last November, and it has grown to be one of the most popular recipes on the blog!  These Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps are my healthy version of Buffalo Wings or a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich.  Perfect for a light summer dinner or enjoy them for lunch!  Enjoy - because they are delicious! 

I have a love for spicy food... there is no denying that!  In fact I am known for by my friends for my extra spicy salsa that leaves everyone searching for water... or milk to cool their mouth down!  There have also been times where Miranda and Derek have told me to lay of the spice when I have been cooking!  Usually I don't listen! 

My dad thinks I get my love for spice from my mom (apparently she could eat salsa by the jar when she was pregnant with me) but I think its a mix of both of them (my dad loves spicy food too)!  These buffalo chicken lettuce wraps pack the heat and cater to my love for spicy food!  

The spicy buffalo sauce gets a cool kick from the creamy blue cheese yogurt dressing and the lettuce wrap gives the whole dish a nice crunch!  These lettuce wraps are perfect for a quick weeknight meal or make a great game day snack!  Whip them up at your own risk... they are spicy!
