Buffalo Chicken Soup

Once again, two of my favorite things collide, buffalo chicken and soup.  For a while now I have had an extreme love for buffalo sauce.  I don’t really care for eating the chicken off of the bone, but if you flavor the meat (or the Pringles — which I can’t seem to find anymore!!!) I love it!  Just the smell of Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce makes my mouth water!

Unfortunately I can’t just make it for dinner at home because as strong as my love for buffalo sauce is, my husband despises it just as much!  So having the opportunity to take it to a party was perfect.  I knew that I would love it no matter what, but I wasn’t sure what others would think. Low and behold it was loved by everyone that tried it and was practically the first one gone.  My only suggestion is don’t skip the toppings.  The soup itself is good, but the addition of green onions, cilantro, and gorgonzola cheese make it outstanding!  I even made croutons to serve with ours which I think makes a great addition to any soup.  This will definitely be in my regular rotation, even though my husband won’t eat it… that just means more for me, right?!
