Buffalo Chicken Soup

Wow. I cannot not stop talking about this Buffalo chicken soup. It is my favorite soup. Perfect for the cool weather. It’s like eating (my favorite) buffalo chicken wings, with celery and onion, and cheesy. Good, gooey, melted cheese.

I used some leftover fire-eater roasted chicken breast in this soup. The chicken has a nice kick to it, so the soup had a nice little kick to it too. If you use a pre-cooked chicken without any spice to it, you might want to add a bit of cayenne or hot sauce to the soup.
