    Here’s a Tip…IF you use Franks Hot sauce…Or any other hot sauce…It helps ALOT If you put a stick of butter while heating up hit sauce in a pan…the butter calms down the acidic taste and spreads the hot sauce better ..hope this helps..it works for me and that’s how I get my kids to eat buffalo wings…works for ALL of the hot sauces for buffalo wings ..
