"I found this on the TOH site and it has quickly become a favorite of my family's. Add a salad and a warm loaf of sourdough and it's perfect comfort food! I generally make the roux and then throw everything in my crockpot to simmer for a couple of hours. I use a cup of the buffalo sauce and 8 oz of Velvetta and it turns out just right for us."

"This soup is wonderful! I make it with a couple extra cans of chicken broth and like a poster said earlier, I substitute a brick of cream cheese for the velveeta. I have actually forgotten to add the 'spices' before, and it still comes out wonderful and receives lots of compliments! Thanks Nonnie for one of my favorite soups."
"This is a great soup! I made it as directed and was really impressed with the smooth velvety taste. My wife and I will definately make it again and ty cream cheese instead of velveta."
"Really neat! I think this would even make a great dip like fondue for breads etc just use ground chicken. HHHMMMM! I did make a couple changes though, I used a whole 14oz can chicken broth and added 1 tsp of dry ranch mix to the soup. served with a crusty bread for sopping up that creamy goodness!! Will have again! I did not use celery salt or garlic salt- I used celery seed and garlic powder since the velvetta and the hot sauce had enough salt in them. Also made my own hot wing sauce by melting 2 T butter and mixing with 1/2 c Texas pete hot sauce. No green onions here used a sweet yellow onion."
"YUM-O! My DH and I, who both REALLY like wings, LOVED this. I made some changes to get it down to 3 WW pts/serving: 1/8 c light butter, 1/8 c flour (soup was plenty thick!), skim milk, reduced fat Velveeta. The celery seemed to be too prevelant, so toward the end, I whirred the soup just a tiny bit with an immersion blender. And, because I just couldn't resist, I stirred in about 1T reduced fat blue cheese salad dressing. Oh, soooo yummy! Thanks for a keeper!"
"My family loves this soup. We eat ours with tortilla chips!"
"Delicious! It was amazing! :)"
"My husband loved this soup, I thought it was just ok. It was very simple to make, I didn't like how thick it was, tasted more like a dip than a soup to me."
"Yum!! This is soooo good! I used cream cheese instead of Velveeta (since I didn't have any) and just dumped an entire can of chicken broth in so I didn't have to get out a measuring cup :D and it was still amazing! So easy too. You can definitely play with the measurements and you probably won't mess it up-it's just that good! Thanks for an awesome recipe!"
"Wow!! 10 stars!"
"The taste was superb! The consistency was a little thicker than I would have liked but that can easily be tweeked next time, and there will be a next time. Thanks for posting."
"Excellent soup! I doubled the recipe and since I HATE Velveeta I sub'ed cream cheese and topped with blue cheese.I ended up adding more stock to thin it out."
"One tasty soup!"
"Everyone here loved this. I made it with the velveeta even though I usually use "real" cheese and low sodium broth. I doubled the broth and milk and added 2 potatoes like another poster did and it turned out wonderful. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is really good - significantly warming (great for cold weather). I suggest warning people about the heat as it caught my family off guard :) Thanks for sharing!!"
"This is really a gooooooood soup. Like some of the others I added more chicken broth (and more cheddar cheeze). Plan to add about 1 1/2 cups total for added liquid. Just give this a try, it's SO good!"
"Wow- buffalo chicken in a bowl! Nice with a thick slice of bread and a bit more hot sauce....we like it spicy on a cold, snowy night! If this was thickened up more (or just use less liquid) this would divine served over pasta as well!"
"Quite tasty. I too added extra chicken stock, celery and onion in order to add more volume. A little dollop of ranch dressing when served made it great."
"Delicious! Will make again and again. I also made this in the crockpot and added additional liquids- I used 2 cups milk and 2 cups broth (just used the cubes and made 2 cups). I wanted more soup- this recipe makes a very small amount, so because I increased liquids, I also used about 16oz of cheese. I used 1/4 cup of Franks Red Hot Buffalo wing sauce and it was perfect for my tastes (worked great to clear my sinuses :), hot, but not too hot- I would not add any more sauce directly to the soup, even though I increased the other ingredients, I would just sit it on the table- so each person can use it to suit their tastes. This would still be delicious even without the chicken! Thanks for sharing!!"
"Loved it! Inexpensive and easy. As another reviewer mentioned, I did feel the need to increase the volume of the liquid ingredients. The celery gives it a wonderful texture, although it does wilt upon reheating."
