Air Fried Buffalo Potatoes

These crispy buffalo potatoes will be the highlight of your weekend! Is there anything better than a crispy potato? Well…if you love buffalo sauce like me, then YES. A crispy buffalo potato is the only thing better than a regular potato 🤣

Oh, for the love of potatoes! Yes, we do adore potatoes at our house! Spring through early summer ‘NEW’ potatoes are available at most local markets. Be sure to grab yourself some when you see them!

New potatoes are a bit smaller than mature potatoes, with softer, thinner skins (perfect skins for eating!) and a crisp texture. They are also lower in starch than mature potatoes. New potatoes usually retain their shape when cooked, which makes them an excellent choice for making these crispy air fryer buffalo potatoes.

🥔Potatoes are a WHOLE FOOD and a very nutrient-dense food option, especially for active people requiring higher carbs for energy!

These Buffalo Potatoes are an awesome side dish or snack idea for your kids & growing teens! I have 6 of ’em at home, and I gotta tell ya that potatoes sure stretch the family food budget with our large crew!

Did you know that potatoes are filled with more potassium than bananas, and they also contain fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, plus a little bit of iron and calcium?

💪🏾 Bonus Points: Eat the potato skin to capture all of the potato’s nutrition. The potato skin has more nutrients than the inside of the potato. It has lots of fiber, and about half of a medium potato’s fiber is from the skin.

🌶Oh yes… one more thing! If you’re buying All Natural Buffalo Style Sauce at the grocery store, check out those ingredients! Should only contain water, vinegar, and spices. I use Tabasco Buffalo sauce because there are only 5 REAL ingredients in Tabasco. Siete currently offers a good product as well.
