slow cooker creamy buffalo chicken chili

main dishes

Fall is soup weather, and we LOVE a good pot of soup. You can’t go wrong with soup on a crisp Fall day. We also love chili and have so many fun chili recipes to share with you. Our buffalo chicken chili has risen to the top of my list of favorites. Picture tender chicken breasts shredded in a creamy buffalo broth that’s not too spicy. Add corn, celery and Great Northern Beans….it just hits the spot! This recipe is really great because you pretty much put everything in your slow cooker and forget about it for a few hours. When it’s done, remove the chicken and shred it, add the monterey jack and cream cheese and it’s ready to go. So simple! This chili is so incredible and might even be better the second day. Enjoy!
