Pressure Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chili

by Kristen

 fThis Instant Pot buffalo chicken chili is spicy and satisfying!  If you like buffalo chicken dip or buffalo wings, you will love the flavors in this buffalo chicken chili!  All you need are a few simple ingredients and following simple instructions!  This Chili is perfect for game day, tailgating, or meal prep!  Who knew that adding a cup of buffalo wing sauce would result in such a fantastic buffalo chicken chili recipe!  


I was at a small get-together last weekend, and one of the other guests brought buffalo chicken dip.  I remembered how much I love that stuff; I decided to make a buffalo chicken chili in my Instant Pot.

This Chili was crazy good.  Buffalo chicken isn’t something I can get my three young sons to eat for dinner.  This chicken chili was all about lunch meal prep for my husband and me I. Chili was so good.  I am obsessed with this.  You will want to use the sauté function before you pressure cook this Chili.

I think that bleu cheese belongs on top of this Chili. However, you might have a different opinion.  If you love buffalo sauce, but you feel that this might be too spicy for you, you can lessen the amount of buffalo sauce you put in, or you can add some plain Greek yogurt to cool this down a bit.

Here is a video I made to help you make this!

All you need is a few ingredients for this recipe, most of which are probably already in your pantry


1 pound of boneless chicken breasts or already cooked shredded chicken

Two green onions

One can of black beans

One can White Navy Beans

One can diced tomatoes

One bag of frozen corn  or one can of corn kernels

1 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup or up to 1 cup buffalo wing sauce

Two teaspoons of celery salt

Two teaspoons onion powder

One teaspoon parsley

4 ounces of cream cheese


green onions or scallions

blue cheese crumbles

sour cream

tortilla chips

ranch dressing

You can cook this Chili with substitutions if you want to make this paleo or whole30- such as replacing the beans with sweet potato chunks.


  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can northern white beans
  • 1 can tomatoes
  • 1 bag frozen corn
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons celery salt
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 pound boneless chicken, cut into pieces


  • green onions
  • bleu cheese
  • plain Greek yogurt


  1. Dump all of the ingredients into your pressure cooker in no particular order. 

  2. Seal the lid 

  3. Pressure cook for 20 minutes 

  4. You can let it naturally release or vent right away.  It doesn't matter so much with this recipe. 

  5. Remove lid and serve! 

I am sure you can add additional veggies if you like.   I add corn to almost all of my chili recipes.  I am sure bell peppers and onions would also taste great in this!  I can’t reiterate enough how delicious this Chili was!  I always use Frank’s Buffalo Sauce. I am partial to Frank’s for all of my hot sauce needs.

This is a great way to switch up a classic chili recipe!  If you make this, I would love you to let me know how you liked it!  Please tag me on social media or comment below and let me know how it worked out for you!  You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tiktok.
