I have to admit that I LOVE anything with Buffalo Wing Sauce. There is something about it’s tangy spiciness that I just crave.
If this chili is a little too spicy for you, you can add less sauce or top your chili with a dollop of sour cream.
For a variation of this recipe, make this a creamy chili by adding 4 ounces of cream cheese. It’s delicious!
