Not sure what is Buffalo about this. Are we supposed to use buffalo meat? Is it from Buffalo? Should we have some chicken wings with it? Does the city of Buffalo even, really exist or is it a figment of our collective imagination? We’ll never know then, will we?
We’ve talked before about how we use these recipes as a kind of guide rather than an exact instructional manual. Never so true as with this recipe. We didn’t have any cocoa, lime or cilantro but it was still good. Your results may vary and yes, there are a veritable buttload of ingredients.
The basics of this recipe are from where else…Alton Brown. That being said we never make it the same way twice. So the recipe is really just kind of a map to get us along the way and we choose different routes to get where we want to go pretty much every time. And really, what in the hell are grains of paradise anyway? I doubt that anywhere in Kansas City has grains of paradise. Maybe grains of wheat…(I’m kidding we’re not that backwards here.)
