  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • ½ cup diced celery
  • 1 (14 ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
  • ¼ cup minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • ¾ cup prepared Buffalo-style wing sauce

  • 1 (14 ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • Optional toppings: extra wing sauce, grated Cheddar cheese, crumbled blue cheese, sliced green onions, lime wedges, avocado slices


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Use the Sauté setting to preheat pressure cooker on normal for 5 minutes. Add olive oil and sauté onion, celery, roasted red peppers, and garlic, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes. Stir in the paprika, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.
  2. Turn pressure cooker off.
  3. Stir in crushed tomatoes, chicken, diced tomatoes with green chilies, wing sauce, pinto beans, and cannellini beans.
  4. Close lid and pressure cook on High for 30 minutes. When cooking time is complete, do a quick release of the pressure.
  5. Turn pressure cooker off and carefully remove lid. Remove chicken to a large bowl.
  6. Shred chicken using two forks.
  7. Return shredded chicken to pressure cooker and stir to combine.
  8. Ladle chili into bowls and garnish with desired toppings to serve.

I made this recipe for my parents and they loved it. It was loaded with flavor. I reduced the buffalo sauce by 1/4 cup since my parents don't like overly spicy foods, and it was perfect.

Addicting! Perfect for game day in front of the TV. It was a little spicy, but I added sour cream. I bet it also tastes great with ranch dressing. I am definitely making this again.

I made this pressure cooker buffalo chicken chili and it was fantastic. I enjoyed more bowls than I could count. If you like buffalo sauce, then this is a must try. It's great for game day, weeknights, or just those cooler days where you want some delicious, hearty chili. It's the best of both worlds, what's not to love?!
