142.4…Buffalo Chicken Chili

I love chili. I also love anything with buffalo hot sauce. How about combining the two?

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat and add ground chicken and onions. Cook about 10 minutes or until no longer pink. 

2. Meanwhile, put carrots, celery, garlic and red pepper in a food processor and puree. 

3. Add pureed vegetables to chicken mixture and cook about 5 minutes until vegetables start to soften.

4. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 1 hour.

Top with whatever you'd like: cheese, onions, sour cream, jalapeños, etc. Just a note: not sure if you noticed or not….there are FIVE tablespoons of chili powder in this recipe. If you don't like it hot (like I do), you may want to tone down the chili powder. :)

This chili was fabulous. It's a keeper for sure.

Breakfast this morning was pineapple Chobani, strawberries and a new granola: Strawberry Vanilla Almond Granola (recipe to come):

I went to the gym and ran a few errands. Lunch was a turkey sandwich, veggies and ranch dressing.

I had to laugh Melissa because ever someone makes my buffalo chicken chili - they always add onions! :D

The comment button on my blog is at the bottom of each post - let me know if you don't see it!
