Buffalo Chicken Chili

January 22, 2015

I know what you're thinking, wow, there are a lot of ingredients in this soup. Well have no fear, it might look daunting but it's worth it. I know I say this a lot but this soup is my new fav. It's more than flavorful, has tons of veggies and will feed you for days. Enjoy! 

  • 1 1/2 pound boneless chicken breasts (I used 2 packs of chicken from Costco) 
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil 
  • 1 onion, chopped 
  • 4 celery ribbs, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, diced (optional)
  • 4 large carrot stalks, chopped
  • 1 15 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 15 ounce can organic tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1 teaspoon cumin 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Optional: 1 15 ounce can cannellini beans 
How to Make: 
  1. Cook chicken. (I put chicken in a pan, covered with water, and brought to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and let cook until fully cooked, about 20 minutes) 
  2. Shred cooked chicken. 
  3. In a large pot, heat oil and sauté garlic. 
  4. Add chopped carrots, onion, celery, peppers and the jalapeño pepper. Cook until translucent. 
  5. Add in chicken broth, tomato sauce and diced tomatoes, stir well. 
  6. Add in shredded chicken. 
  7. Add in hot sauce and spices and mix well to combine. 
  8. Let cook for 15 minutes. (I let it cook on low for about 45 minutes, the Broncos were on!) 
  9. Top with fresh avocado. 
  10. Enjoy! 
I prepped all the veggies before hand  
all my soups kind of look a like
and remember, avocado is good on everything.

  8. This looks perfect to combat the cold these days! I'm trying to get my husband to become a chili fan, because I personally could eat a different type of chili every day and be happy, but he's not nearly as enthusiastic as I am ;) I'll have to give this one a try!

  9. 3 Studies SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    This means that you actually get rid of fat by eating coconut fat (in addition to coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from major medicinal magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!


I love hearing from all of you and greatly appreciate all your feedback and comments! xx Kristen
