Buffalo Chili


With a slight heat to it, this chili is sure to warm you up on a cold day.  Here in Oklahoma it's about 45 right now.  We went from 80's to 40's almost overnight.  That can chill a person to the bone.  So make this up and stay warm from the inside out =)





Note that this recipe originally called for ground chicken.  I don't have any of that on hand so I used ground rabbit.  I'm sure any kind of meat would work equally well.  Also, yes it is a half cup buffalo wing sauce.  Believe me, I cannot stand hot food, so this was a leap for me to make.  It's not hot! It has just a bit of spice after you swallow and doesn't make you regret eating it in the first place lol.  So this is definitely okay for those of us that can't take the 'heat' so to speak.
