Your favorite buffalo chicken flavors in a chili! Perfect for the slow cooker, this recipe is easy & healthy being both whole30 and paleo.
Yes another chili recipe. It’s pouring rain here in LA so this weekend was all about Netflix and chill. And chili.Only 5 ingredients. Yup, that’s it. You can add more of course but I wanted to keep it simple. I know those look like carrots but they’re not, they are diced sweet potatoes. Since I eliminated beans, I wanted to add a potato replacement. Carrots would be a great addition though; and they would keep with the ‘buffalo’ theme. Diced celery too for that matter. I served them both as a garnish but you can add them directly into the chili.
I put my bottle of Tessemae’s in my pantry half way through January whole 30 and I didn’t use it. I don’t know what I was thinking. That’s okay better late than never. It’s perfect in this recipe. If you don’t have Tessemae’s then you can substitute your favorite buffalo sauce.
Buffalo sauce has enough flavor itself you don’t need to add any seasoning. You should add water though. Personally I like to dilute the sauce with 1/2 cup of water. Try that ratio. If it’s still too salty or thick for you then add a more water in teaspoon increments.
- 2 lbs ground chicken breast, browned
- 10 ounces Tessemae's Buffalo Sauce
- 1 lb sweet potatoes, diced
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 1 small onion, diced
- ½ cup water
- Add ground chicken, sweet potatoes, bell pepper and onion to the slow cooker.
- In a small bowl, mix together buffalo sauce and water. Pour into the slow cooker.
- Stir to mix well.
- Cook HIGH 2-3 hours or LOW 4-6.
As with most chilis, this is even better the next day.
