Buffalo sauce isn’t just for wings! This Buffalo Beef Taco recipe is a simple weeknight dinner idea, filled with a punch of buffalo flavor.
Originally posted October 7, 2009 – Since I’m basically anti-cooking right now because of the heat, my only option is to find things that aren’t cooked, or that can be done in very little time. This Buffalo Beef Taco Recipe falls under that second category. You all should know how I feel about tacos at this point, and I love the fun buffalo twist these tacos have. And it certainly doesn’t hurt that dinner can be on the table in only 20 minutes!! I was surprised that the majority of my family actually scarfed these down (darn picky 4 year old) and we didn’t have a scrap left. That is a successful dinner!

Everyone loves taco night, don’t they? I could seriously eat tacos once a week and not get sick of them. In fact, I’ve been craving them like crazy lately, and have probably eaten them 3 times in the past 2 weeks!!
But what do you do if your family is getting tired of your normal taco cravings? Change it up a bit!! This Buffalo Beef Taco Recipe is a great way to get your taco fix but to have something a little different at the same time. This recipe actually came from a free brochure I picked up at the grocery store several years ago. And you do know what? Sometimes great recipes come from unexpected places!!
- 1 pound ground beef
- ¼ cup buffalo wing sauce
- 8 small flour tortillas
- 1 cup thinly sliced lettuce
- ½ cup shredded carrot
- ⅓ cup chopped celery
- ¼ cup prepared blue cheese dressing
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
- Place the ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until no longer pink, breaking it up as it cooks. Stir in the buffalo wing sauce and cook an additional minute.
- If desired, char the tortillas over a gas stove, or heat in a dry skillet.
- To assemble, top each tortilla with some of the beef mixture. Top with the lettuce, celery and carrots, then drizzle with blue cheese dressing. Serve topped with chopped cilantro.
