If you've known me for any length of time then you are probably aware that I have an aversion to meat that is on a bone. I don't love a rib, a wing, a drummett...none of it.
Despite not loving a wing, I do love (like L-O-V-E) the buffalo chicken taste. Buffalo chicken dip? Hello, old friend. Buffalo chicken salad? Dying to make it.
Not sure where the love comes. I don't really like hot food. Maybe, just maybe, it's just an excuse to eat blue cheese.
I do love that blue cheese....
Sooooo. When I found a recipe for Buffalo Chicken Soup in my favorite little cookbook, I knew that I just had to give it a try. While it doesn't contain blue cheese AND it's hotter than the Delta in August...it's a keeper! Just make sure that you've got celery and sour cream to cut the heat. And a gallon of water. And maybe some milk. And some ice cream. And a friend/significant other/acquaintance around just in case some spice gets caught in your throat and you think you are choking like I just did. That Big Browne Hound, he doesn't know the universal symbol for choking.
Seriously, folks. It's that hot...
