Creamy Buffalo Chicken Chili Recipe Tips:

+ Looking to reduce the carb count on this dish? Reduce to one can of beans, or you can even skip them completely and add carrots and celery instead. If you do, throw in the carrots and celery at the same time as the onion and bell pepper.

+ Another method for mixing in the cream cheese is incorporating small spoonfuls into the larger pot. Essentially, you’re just trying to melt it down well so you aren’t left with any large chunks. The softer your cream cheese, the easier this is.

  • Heat a large pot over medium heat and add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the ground chicken. Cook, breaking up the meat as you go, until almost no pink remains, about 7 minutes.
  • In the last couple minutes of cooking the chicken, add the onion and bell pepper. Saute, stir occasionally, until the chicken is fully cooked and the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes
  • Stir in the garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Saute another 2 minutes to cook the garlic.
  • Stir in the beans, tomatoes, broth, and buffalo sauce. Bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to medium low. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  • Add the softened cream cheese to a medium bowl. Add 1-2 cups of the chili to the bowl with the cream cheese and whisk to combine, until mostly smooth and no cream cheese clumps remain. Add this mixture to the soup pot and whisk to combine all ingredients.
  • Ladle into bowls and serve hot with toppings such as finely diced celery and blue cheese crumbles.
