Move over Jammin Jalapeno, a new sauce is taking over the Buffalo Wild Wings menu. The Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili Flavored Sauce is the food combination that will have people skipping the flamin’ and craving that touch of sweetness.

Buffalo Wild Wings is known for its numerous wing variations. From hot sauces to tangy varieties, there is a flavor option for every palate. Add into that mix the dry seasonings and the menu selection covers all the possible combinations.

Recently, Buffalo Wild Wings has pushed the innovation conversation. While the brand appreciates that it is America’s Sports Bar and friends come to toast the good times over an iced cold beer and tasty food, the menu can never be stale. Just like a favorite team needs to reinvent itself for the new season, menu innovations keep guests coming back for more.

What does Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili Flavored Sauce taste like?

While many people do not stray from their favorite sauce, Buffalo Wild Wings wants to entice guests with this bold new offering. According to the restaurant, the sauce features “soy sauce, brown sugar, onion, garlic and paprika.” In addition, the wings have Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili chip crumbles.

In many ways, this offering is quite unique for the restaurant. It is more than just a sauce. The addition of the chip crumbles adds texture and enhances the flavor experience.

As Jamie Carawan, Vice President of Brand Menu and Culinary of Buffalo Wild Wings, said “We’re excited to partner with another iconic brand in Doritos to offer wing lovers the opportunity to experience a familiar flavor in a new and exciting way.”

According to Caio Correa, Senior Director of Marketing, Frito-Lay North America. “The Spicy Sweet Chili Flavored Sauce is inspired by one of our most unique and beloved flavors, it pairs perfectly with wings and an ice-cold refreshing Pepsi. We are thrilled to bring our fans another bold way to enjoy their favorite chips.”

Looking at that statement, it showcases the connection between all types of food. Snacks are more than just a side dish for a meal. They can transform the flavor and texture to make a dish more satisfying.

In addition, the food and beverage pairing is equally as important. As Pepsi has proven, all types of food, especially wings, have enhanced flavor enjoyment when eaten with a Pepsi.

It will be interesting to see if Buffalo Wild Wings adapts this idea with other Frito Lay brands. All types of snacks lend themselves to flavor pairings. From Funyuns to potato chips, the possibilities are many.
