Buffalo Chicken Soup

Growing up I wasn’t a huge fan of spicy foods, the smell alone would make me a little sick. My grandfather practically drank Tabasco sauce with how much he used it on every.single.thing. he ate. My brother D is the same way. Nothing is too hot for him!

As I entered college I began experimenting more with what I ate and at some point I decided I like hot sauce particularly Louisiana Hot Sauce it’s not extremely hot and has a great flavor. Whenever I have a recipe that calls for hot sauce I always use Louisiana Hot Sauce and it was no different when I made Buffalo Chicken Soup. I had a HUGE craving for something spicy and knew it would hit the spot! This was by far one of the best soups I have ever made, it was a HUGE hit in our house and I wish I had made a double batch!

I didn’t do a step by step this time, I was super hungry and super tired but it was so good I couldn’t NOT share the recipe with you!

    This looks delicious. I actually did not like any spicy food until my 2nd pregnancy. With that pregnancy I wanted everything spicy and really like it which was weird for me since I normally go away from spicy food. Even after I still like some spice!

    This recipe looks wonderful. However, my family is not a fan of blue cheese. Do you have any suggestion on a substitution? Maybe cheddar cheese or something?
