If you are a regular reader here then you know of my love of all things Buffalo flavored. It is a fun flavor profile that can easily shift from mild and kid friendly to h-o-t! Today’s Buffalo Chicken Tater Tot Casserole recipe falls in the mild, child friendly range. I used a new-to-me Creamy Ranch Buffalo Wing Sauce from Moore’s Marinades & Sauces.
About Moore’s Marinades and Sauces
It all began over thirty years ago in the small Alabama town of Jasper with a family-owned steakhouse and homegrown good flavor. There, Moore’s Original Marinade was created and soon became a staple in the town for its delightful, hickory taste. From the start, our flavor defined not only food, but family. This recipe was the Moore’s family’s shining achievement and was so sought after, that they eventually began to sell it in Styrofoam cups to the steakhouse regulars.
Current flavors include:
- Original Marinade
- New! Zesty Garden Heb Marinade
- Teriyaki Marinade
- Original Buffalo Wing Sauce
- Spicy Habanero Wing and Hot Sauce
- Creamy Ranch Buffalo Sauce
- Blue Cheese Buffalo Wing Sauce
- Honey Barbecue Wing Sauce
- Asian Teriyaki Wing Sauce
Moore’s Marinades & Sauces are available in most major supermarkets as well as online for about $2.00 per bottle.

This recipe starts with precooked and shredded chicken. I usually have a few 3 cup bags of this in my freezer. It is very easy to make just follow my instructions on my How to Make Shredded Chicken in a Crockpot post. This process does take just over 4 hours so if you are making the chicken on the day you want to make the casserole, please plan accordingly.
