I am so excited to start posting recipes that aren’t a sweet or treat. For my first non-sweet treat, I am featuring Buffalo Chicken Chili. I made this for the play-off game between Green Bay & San Francisco. I have a lot of “buffalo” lovers in my family, so this went over really well, I think it earned a 5 Star from everyone. I don’t care for things with too much heat, but this was just perfect.
The lowest temperature today was a -50, that’s right, I said a negative 50! I still made it to work and my car started when I left, thank goodness. Did you make it into work today?
You start by sauteing onion, celery and carrots until they are tender, then add in the garlic and spices.
Then toss in the kidney beans. I used light and dark kidney beans, but you can pick any bean you like.
Toss in the chicken. I poached some chicken breasts for this, but you could easily use a rotisserie chicken.
Next comes the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Then you let it cook over low heat to blend all the flavors.
After it is done simmering add in the hot sauce and cream cheese. If you like things extra hot, add in more hot sauce. Serve it up and top it with blue cheese.
Soups and Chili are the perfect comfort food for football games and cold Wisconsin weather, try this one today! Enjoy!
