“Creamy Buffalo Chicken Soup”

Do you love buffalo chicken wings? If you do, have you thought about that same taste in a soup? Same great buffalo wing taste of fabulous hot sauce and the crunch of celery in a satisfying creamy base. A classic recently sent to me by my sister, Creamy Buffalo Chicken Soup. Adapted from All Day I Dream About Foodthis soup is considered a chowder in the original recipe but I think it feels like a soup. When I think of chowder I think of chunks of vegetables. My soup does contain vegetables but not chunky in the sense of chowder. No matter, this soup is divine and darn delicious in every way, teasing every fiber of your taste buds. Did I mention start to finish in 45 minutes? Perfect when short on time.

Another great fact about Creamy Buffalo Chicken Soup, its low carb. Can I get an “AMEN!” Yippee! because not all low carb recipes have great flavor. Creamy Buffalo Chicken Soup has tons of flavor beginning with sautéed chopped celery, onion, and I added chopped poblano pepper for a little more heat, comfortable heat. Have no fear as this soup is not hot and would appeal to kids. Next tomato paste, chicken broth and buffalo wing sauce (I use Red Hot brand) is added. For the chicken broth, I used Zoup Bone Broth. This broth is delicious, a bit expensive but worth the extra expense. You can literally drink this broth so give it a try when you feel a cold coming on. The broth gives this soup an almost refreshing taste, more than some broths or stocks used in recipes.

Next bring soup to boil and reduce to simmer, blending cream cheese and a cup of hot broth until thoroughly mixed. I use an immersion blender for this part. Whisk cream cheese mixture into broth. Pour in cream and stir in chopped chicken. I purchased a rotisserie chicken from my local market because their chicken is delicious and what a time saver. You have just made one of the best low carb soups ever, Creamy Buffalo Chicken Soup for a chilly, rainy day. Grab serving bowls and serve soup topped with your favorite blue cheese crumbles and chopped celery if you desire.
