Buffalo Chicken Soup

Those who read my blog are going to think I only ever cook spicy food.  Well, you would be partly correct.  Everyone at our house likes hot and spicy, so I love to prepare it.  Here is a recipe for a spicy soup . . .it is a favorite of my guys!

Buffalo Chicken Soup
1/2 c melted butter
3 stalks celery (finely chopped)
1 small onion (finely chopped)
1/4 c flour
3/4 c half and half
3 c water
1 chicken bouillon cube (or you can use 3 c chicken broth...instead of water/bouillon cube)
2 c chopped chicken
1/4 - 1/2 c hot sauce (Frank's Red Hot is my favorite)
1 1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Put melted butter, celery and onion in large pot.   Saute' until tender . . 3-4 minutes.
Add flour and cook another 1-2 minutes, so flour absorbs butter and cooks.
Slowly add half and half and water (or broth) into butter/flour mixture.  Add the bouillon cube, chicken, hot sauce, and cheese.  Season with salt and pepper.  Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.  Serve with a dollop of sour cream and some extra shredded cheese.
