Buffalo Chicken Chili

Posted on

I have Biz to thank for this amazeballs recipe.  I like a lot of different chili’s (this is the eighth chili recipe on my blog!), but this is definitely a contender for my favorite.  I love the heat level–we like spicy and for us this was perfect.  Spicy but not so spicy that you can’t taste the wonderful flavor.  Your lips may burn a bit, but you can still feel your mouth after eating a bowl, which is a plus in my book.

Since the veggies are pureed and totally not visible, there’s less risk of complaints from picky eaters.  I felt super manly while eating it, with all the meat and beans and spiciness, and apparent lack of vegetables.  But then I couldn’t pee standing up, so that was the end of my manliness.

Also, just an FYI, your chili will not be this thick right after cooking it.  This was the day after I made it, and before I heated up the bowl.  Not many things look good cold, but apparently chili is one exception to the rule. I think it’s so purdy.  (I believe I just lost my man card again.)

2 large carrots, peeled & cut into 1-2″ pieces
3 stalks celery, cut into 1-2″ pieces
1 large red pepper, cored & cut into 1-2″ pieces
5 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 pounds ground chicken
5 tablespoons chili powder

1 (15 oz) diced tomatoes
1 (15 oz) black beans, drained

Optional garnish: blue cheese crumbles or Spicy Ranch Crackers

Place carrots, celery, red pepper, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment.  Process until pureed and set aside.  In a soup pot, heat oil and add ground chicken and cook about 10 minutes on medium heat until no longer pink.  Add vegetable purée to chicken mixture and cook about 5 minutes until veggies start to soften.  Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 1 hour.  Serve with blue cheese crumbles or Spicy Ranch Crackers, if desired.

  1. I have a variety of chili recipes that we like too! This recipe has been on my to try list for quite some time. I might have to use ground turkey instead of chicken because that is what I usually have on hand. Great idea to top it wi your little Ranch crackers. This would be a good Super Bowl meal!

  13. I’m making this for my dad tonight! He’s been out of town. When I showed this recipe to him last week, he wanted me to make it to welcome him home with. :) I’m also making our regular not-so-spicy chili for the rest of my family (Some of us don’t take heat well:)).

  14. You crack me up! The whole can’t pee while standing thing and calling this chili purdy… you’re a riot! I’ve seen recipes like this around and have wanted to try it because I tend to love all things buffalo. I’m sure this would be no exception and I’m gonna have to add it to my menu soon and very soon. It’s been cold round these here parts and chili is just perfect for this kinda weather. Oh, I’ve been pinning your recipes too btw… I used to only save them to a word doc list that I have saved of recipes I wanna try, but figured pinning gives my fellow blogger friends exposure :)
