This meal welds together two greats of modern “American” cuisine: tacos (yes, yes, not ours, but we love them so!) and Buffalo wings. The wings come off the bone here, replaced by succulent chicken breasts shredded and flavored with piquant hot sauce. The Buffalo-ness is topped with a ranch-y slaw of carrot and celery, offering a satisfying crunch to go with the blue cheese and crispy onions garnishing these tacos. God Bless America!
