Crunchy flour tortilla cannoli shells stuffed with spicy Buffalo chicken salad.
Cut the flour tortillas into 5-inch circles. Loosely wrap the tortilla around a cannoli shell and secure with a toothpick. Or, if you prefer, fold the tortilla around two of your fingers and secure with toothpick. Overlap the tortilla only as much as you need to secure it with a toothpick leaving a nice wide center to fill with chicken mixture.
Use a frying pan or pot that is large enough to fill with 1 to 1 1/2 inches of oil to fry the tortillas. The pan should still have plenty of room so that the oil will not boil over. Heat the oil to 360ºF or until bubbles form when a scrap of tortilla is place in the oil. Place the tortillas in the hot oil with tongs one at a time. Leave the cannoli mold in the tortilla or use the tongs to keep the shape of a cannoli until the tortilla is cooked enough to hold its own shape then continue with the next tortilla. Only fry up to 4 to 5 at a time.
Fry the tortillas until golden brown and crispy; they will continue to brown a little when removed from the oil. Drain on paper towels. While the tortilla is hot, push down any of the bubbles that my have formed on the inside of the cannoli shell so that the center is open for the filling.
In a mixing bowl, toss together the diced chicken and diced celery.
in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and hot wing sauce in a small bowl. Add more hot wing sauce slowly and taste as you go for the desired flavor. The sauce mixture should be hotter than you expect because you will be adding it to the chicken and filling the tortilla with it, which will dilute the flavor of the sauce.
Fold the hot wing sauce mixture into the chicken a little at a time to achieve the desired consistency. Stir in the desired amount of blue cheese crumbles and save the remaining for garnish. Salt and pepper to taste. If you add the blue cheese to the mixture, you may not need salt so be sure to taste.
Fill the cannoli shells with chicken from both ends with a small spoon. Use the end of the spoon to push the filling into the middle of the cannoli.
Serve with hot wing sauce and blue cheese crumbles.
I am a Mexican food fiend and nothing makes me happier than a big bowl of pico de gallo and chips. This is such an easy recipe and you can make it mild, medium or spicy depending on what you prefer. I like spicy, so jalapeno peppers are for me, but you could add habanero peppers if you like a lot of heat!
