Spicy Fish Sticks with Buffalo Sauce
Don't use Tabasco sauce in this recipe; look for hot pepper sauce in the condiments aisle of the supermarket. It's a specialty sauce used for making Buffalo Chicken Wings.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 6

Add celery and blue cheese; transfer to serving bowl, cover, and refrigerate.
When ready to eat, place fish sticks on cookie sheet. Combine chili powder and cheese; toss well and sprinkle on fish sticks.
