Like most Slow Cooker recipes this Buffalo Chicken Chili is super easy to make. Simply add the bulk of the ingredients to the pot and let it do its thing.
Like most of my Gourmet Chili Recipes, this recipe packs a kick thanks to the Buffalo Wing Sauce. I like to use Frank's RedHot but you can use whatever brand you prefer.
For this chili recipe, I used a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies because that is what I had in my pantry but you could also use a can of fire roasted tomatoes for a little more flavor.
Cook times may vary due to several factors like the brand and/or size of the slow cooker, ambient temperature, etc. Your chili will be ready when the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F.
💭 Recipe Tip
Try to resist as much as possible the temptation to open the lid while it's cooking as the slow cooker loses heat. By just opening the lid to stir the contents can make the internal temperature drop by 10°F to 15°F.
While you can pretty much use any brand of cream cheese, I highly recommend you use Philadelphia brand cream cheese. You will taste the difference.
Just like when you have Buffalo Wings this chili is awesome with a little crumbed blue cheese on top. I realize not everyone is a fan of the stinky cheese but it pairs really well with this chili recipe.
