We love Buffalo chicken, but we have a complaint: the hot sauce coats our fingers and then, when we rub our eyes, we're in pain for hours. What, this doesn't happen to you? Why are you walking away? Anyway, these lettuce cups save you endless eyeball agony and reward you with crispy, spicy flavor, with that funky hit of blue cheese that's required for anything “Buffalo.” Your hands and eyes will thank you for being spared, and your mouth will applaud your good taste.
