Buffalo Chicken Slow Cooker Soup – Perfect For A One-Bowl Dinner

When the weather starts to cool off and the leaves begin to drop, I know it’s time to pull out the slow cooker. If I’m busy all day long, the slow cooker gives me the ability to serve our family a hot dinner without much effort. I just throw everything together and come home to a warm meal. This Buffalo Chicken Slow Cooker Soup is a family favorite.

It’s creamy, hearty and has that addictive buffalo flavor that we love. I like to serve it as a one-bowl dinner with warm French bread. The dinner is great for Fall football games, weeknight meals and pot-luck gatherings. Everyone has asked me for the recipe and now I’m finally sharing it with my readers.

If you’re really looking to impress the family, make some Cherry Cheesecake Brownies for dessert too. It’s a meal that will leave them coming back for more.
