Let’s talk about soup for a minute because I just love soup!  I will eat it all year long but let’s face it, there is nothing quite like a warm bowl of soup on a chilly fall/winter day.

Even better, how about a delicious buffalo chicken soup on cool days to make everything seem right in this world. This recipe might just be my new favorite and I’m excited about all the portions I stocked up in the freezer.

It is easy to make and to my fellow buffalo chicken lovers this one sure does have a kick to it, but if you like less spicy just sprinkle in less Franks hot sauce. I used my zero-point ranch dressing recipe to keep the points low, making 12 servings at just 1 smart point each on Weight Watchers freestyle.

  1. This soup is absolutely delicious! I added a can of puréed cannellini beans to thicken it a bit and kept the freestyle points the same! Thank you Kate for a great recipe!

  2. I made this yesterday. I’m usually not a big soup fan, but, I really loved this one! I used the zero point ranch dressing, cooked it in my slow cooker, and followed the recipe directions exactly. It turned out perfectly with a nice little “kick” to it. It was a huge hit with our sons and their wives – there was none left over! I will definitely make this again!!

  3. Made this last night and had it for lunch at work today… yet another recipe from you that is delicious! Definitely a keep, and definitely one I’d make again.

  4. Made this on the weekend….so good!! It will be going into the rotation for sure! Nice little bit of heat without being overbearing. Perfect buffalo chicken taste! Reheats great too!

    1. Hi Leigh, yeah I think that would work, I’m not too sure on the points either but I don’t imagine many
