Simply put, if you are obsessed with anything and everything ‘buffalo sauce’ you are going to LOVE this chili.
It’s basically a big pot of ground chicken, chock full of celery, carrots, onions, and peppers, swimming in a vat of buffalo goodness.
And it’s so perfect for game day because you can make a big pot (this recipe easily doubles or triples) and then leave it on the stove and let the gang serve themselves.
But I also want to tell you that if football is not your thing, this Buffalo Chicken Chili just so happens to be great on Tuesday nights as well!
