Creamy Buffalo Wings

What’s the most popular food item that can be found at a Super Bowl party? If you guessed wings, you would be wrong. Vegetables are the No. 1 food eaten in homes during the last three Super Bowls, according to the NPD Group market research firm that tracks Americans’ eating habits.

But you’d probably get some argument from fans of the highly popular appetizer. Chicken wings have become a real favorite of sports enthusiasts, perfect finger food for the Super Bowl. And most recipes for wings are very simple to prepare.

Here’s a recipe for Creamy Buffalo Wings from Bravo’s Top Chef Masters winner, Chef Floyd Cardoz. Chef Floyd’s reimagined Buffalo wing recipe will be served at the annual, celebrity-studded Maxim magazine Super Bowl party in Indianapolis for football fans, pro athletes and celebrities alike.
