Buffalo Chicken Soup

Oh my goodness, I am so excited about sharing this soup! It is so scrumptious that my oldest son said it was the best meal he had eaten in a long time (I am trying to take that the right way). This cooler time of year, in my neck of the woods, makes soups just perfect for dinner, and this one is a definite winner.
