Spicy Chicken Chili – Give Every Night New Flavor

If buffalo wings could be made into soup form, this is it!

Chicken. Spice. Celery. Blue Cheese.

Seriously. Yum!

I decided to double this recipe…some for us to enjoy at home, and some to take a potluck this past week. I only made a slight change to the recipe that I served my family…I added half as much of the red hot pepper sauce. I didn’t want the kids to complain, or have red hot lips and tongues. And I took another pot to a potluck, made as directed.

There was nothing. And I mean nothing left in the pot. I brought a little tub of blue cheese and printed out a simple instruction card so people would know to add a spoonful (or two, or three) of blue cheese to their little bowl.

I will be making this again for the Super Bowl…it’s seriously like wings in a bowl! And would be perfect for game day…or any weeknight for that matter!

    I’m an email subscriber. Hmmmm decisions, decisions, I think bean enchilada casserole sounds yummy, and is a must try.
