I love the flavor of buffalo chicken wings! But, they’re kind of messy, and I just got new furniture. With baseball season in full swing (come on, that’s kind of funny) I decided to come up with a recipe to enjoy that flavor in a slightly neater way. Introducing…buffalo chicken chili! All of the flavors of buffalo chicken wings in a neat and tidy bowl that you eat with a spoon, and you don’t even need a napkin. Genius!
I browned some ground chicken (I put some boneless skinless chicken breasts into the food processor and turned it into ground chicken) and added some celery, carrots, onions, jalapeño, and garlic along with some tasty spices.
I deglazed the pan with some beer, then stirred in some tomato sauce, tomato paste, and some hot sauce for the buffalo flavor, and simmered.
The end result is a thick and hearty, buffalowie (I just made up a new word) chili! Top with a little blue cheese and some scallions……
And dig in!
Mmm! This is the perfect, yet tidy, alternative to buffalo wings on game day (on the new sofa). There is the buffalo flavor from the hot sauce, the heat from the jalapeño, and then the blue cheese cuts right through the spice. If you love all things buffalo, and you want to save the furniture, definitely give this buffalo chicken chili a try! Go Royals!
