I do believe I have found one of my new favorite recipes — this incredibly delicious Buffalo Chicken Chili Recipe. Oh my GOD, it is is so good! As I’ve said many times before, I am a huge fan of buffalo chicken anything, so when I found the original version of this recipe at Closet Cooking, I was psyched to re-vamp it and make it a more diet friendly dish.

Each large serving is incredibly flavorful and satisfying. It’s definitely a different taste than a traditional chili — it tastes kinda like a buffalo wing stew. SO GOOD. I like mine spicy, so I added extra hot sauce, but if you prefer a mild buffalo chicken chili, just use a bit less hot sauce.

I plan on using this as a Super Bowl Recipe too and serving it with some carrot and celery sticks…the men will love it and will have no idea they are eating a chicken chili that’s good for them and low in calories.

If you are a fan of buffalo chicken wings, you must try this Buffalo Chicken Chili. I would eat this every day if I could!
