Rachael Ray celebrates her 1,000th episode with a few of her top recipes.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 pounds all-white meat ground chicken breast
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 ribs celery, finely chopped
  • 5 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika (you can substitute with chipotles or chipotle chili powder)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup hot sauce, depending on how hot you like it
  • 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce (if you have a big can of tomatoes, don't go to the store to get the sauce, it's fine. Just use what you have)
  • 1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 7-ounce bag yellow corn chips
  • 1 7-ounce bag blue corn chips
  • 3/4 pound blue cheese, crumbled, recommended type Maytag Blue
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped (a couple of handfuls)
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 375??F or broiler to medium

    Place a large pot over medium-high heat, add 1 turn of the pan of EVOO, about 1 tablespoon, and the butter. Once the butter has melted and the pot is hot, add the ground chicken. Brown it, using the back of a wooden spoon to break it up in to small pieces, about 5-6 minutes. Add the carrot, onion, celery, garlic, paprika, bay leaf and some salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 3-4 minutes. Add the chicken stock and scrape up any brown bits on the bottom of the pot. Add the hot sauce, tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes, and bring up to a bubble. Simmer for 8-10 minutes to let the flavors come together.

    While the chili is simmering, spread the yellow and blue corn chips out on a cookie sheet. Top with the crumbled blue cheese and transfer to the oven to melt the cheese, about 4-5 minutes. If using the broiler, 2-3 minutes should do the trick. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the chopped parsley.

    Top each serving of buffalo chicken chili with a few blue cheese-topped corn chips.
