I am a wimp when it comes to spice. Okay, I’m a wimp when it comes to other things, too. I can’t handle scary movies. Or books. I freak out when I see a cockroach. I can’t lift heavy things.

But, in this case, my wimpy-ness came up because I can’t handle buffalo chicken. It took me years to be able to tolerate mild salsa. Yes, I’m serious. Green chiles, too.

But, buffalo chicken has become such a popular flavor that it just begged to be turned into a quinoa bite!

So, I took one for the team. I did it for all of you. I dip mine in (lots of) ranch to keep the spice level lower for myself, but they’re actually quite tasty and much healthier than fried chicken wings!

They’re the perfect bite-sized treat to serve for the big game!
