Buffalo Chicken Chili

Recently some friends and family members and I decided to do Soup-er Sunday!  We would all make a soup (or two), eat, watch the Titans game and then everyone could take home some leftovers.  It was so much fun!  We had 4 different kinds of soup (all will have their own post) and each one was absolutely incredible!  Since Allen insisted on having the following, Buffalo Chicken Soup, Maggie made this along with her Chicken Tortilla Soup.  What a fun way to spend a fall afternoon together with friends and family (and a great way to cover dinner for the rest of the week)!

Buffalo Chicken Chili
As adapted from

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 rotisserie chicken, pulled
1 large carrot, peeled and finely chopped
1 large onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, finely chopped
5 coves garlic, chopped
5 tablespoons chili powder
 2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground paprika
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup hot buffalo wing sauce (such as Franks REDHOT Buffalo Wing Suce) or to taste
2 (15 oz.) cans tomato sauce
1 (15 oz.) crushed tomatoes
1 (15 oz.) can white kidney or cannellini beans, drained
1 (19 oz.) can red kidney beans, drained
Heat olive oil and butter in a large pot over medium-high heat.

Place chicken in the pot.  Stir in carrot, onion, celery, garlic, chili powder, cumin, paprika, and salt and pepper, and cook and stir until the onion is translucent and the vegetables are beginning to soften, 3 to 4 more minutes.
 Stir in the hot sauce, crushed tomatoes, and white and red kidney beans.  

 Bring to a boil and simmer over medium-low heat about 1 hour, until the vegetables are tender and the flavors have blended.  Serve with sour cream, cheese, tortilla chips and anythign else you want to throw in there!  Oh yeah, and have a beer on hand to cut the quell the spicy!
An invention I was completely unaware of before Maggie introduced me to them is the liner for the crock pot....freaking incredible! Not more do you have to soak the crock pot over night after making your favorite soup.  Just throw out the liner and move on!
GO TITANS!!!!!!!!!
