You don't have to have chicken on hand to revel in some classic Buffalo flavor. Avocado stands up well to a dose of spicy, tangy Frank's RedHot and a sprinkle of blue cheese in this open-faced sandwich, which means heat fiends can really push the limits (and their more spice-averse counterparts can keep things on the mild side, while still getting plenty of flavor).
