1/4 to 1/2 cup hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Topping 1/4 cup nonfat sour cream
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles

Coat large pot with oil spray. Preheat on medium.
Add carrots, celery,  stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes, add water, a tablespoon at a time as necessary to prevent scorching. Add garlic and saute 1 minute. Add ground chicken.

The funniest part is that I picked a recipe to make from the book (I'm making it on Tuesday) and immediately her Buffalo chicken chili stood out to me, and then I came back to your post to see if you had shared a recipe too, and what do you know?! Great minds think alike!! Too funny :)
