Now that I’ve started making soups and chilis this fall, I can’t stop. I forgot how easy they can be and what great leftovers they make and this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Chili is no exception!

While I’m a huge fan of a traditional pot of chili, I love switching things up a little, like with my white chicken chili, and now this Buffalo Chicken Chili. I mean, a chili that tastes like buffalo wings?! Yes, please!

Ingredients in Buffalo Chicken Chili

Not only is this buffalo chicken chili a fun change from the usual, it is seriously so easy. I didn’t have to add any spices since the wing sauce adds so much flavor on it’s own and the Gold’n Plump Ground Chicken holds the flavor so well.

I also lightened things up by using Greek yogurt to add creaminess instead of heavy cream, cream cheese, or sour cream. The trick is to mix the yogurt with some warm broth in a separate bowl before adding it to the big pot. That way, the yogurt doesn’t separate, making it all chunky in the soup.

How to Serve Buffalo Chicken Chili

I served this buffalo chicken chili with homemade cornbread muffins but I think it would also go great with Fritos or tortilla chips. I also garnished it with blue cheese crumbles, fresh chopped celery and green onions for even more of a buffalo chicken feel.

  2. This sounds wonderful! Great addition to my chili recipes. Thanks for the tip about separation. Didn’t know that before, and have had the yogurt all chunky in my favorite veggie chili. 🙂

  3. haha oh gosh I’m the same way lately – a soup making machine!!

    This chili sounds fantastic! Love that it’s such a fun spin on normal chili!

  4. I love your white chicken chili. I also found a veggie meatball stew my family of 8 likes… Freezer and crockpot friendly 🙂

  5. Asian Chili. Kind of a mashup of different recipes with a Kick of Asian flavor. Don’t have a better name for it
