Buffalo Chicken Tacos

I hit a home-run the other day.  I received a pat on the back & an "atta-girl."  I made Buffalo Chicken Tacos.  I usually associate chicken wings with 3 things: guys, beer & football.  I'm not a huge fan of eating meat off the bone- something about it just grosses me out.  So I don't particularly LOVE chicken wings.  When I found this recipe...I immediately knew it'd be a big hit.  I'd like it because it was chicken off the bone, and my hubby would love it because well...he's a guy, he was drinking beer & of course he watching football.  We both really enjoyed these tacos!
