  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup Buffalo wing sauce such as Frank's Redhot
  • 1 15 oz can diced tomatoes

  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 medium loaf French bread
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • garlic powder
  • ground black pepper

  • Once the chili is ready, preheat the oven to 425F for the bread.
  • Slice the bread into 3/4" slices, coat with melted butter, then sprinkle with garlic, garlic powder, black pepper and blue cheese.
  • Bake at 425F until cheese is melted and begins to brown (about 10 minutes). Serve with a bowl of the chili.

Notes

If you want your chili to be a bit thicker, use more tomato paste and/or add a bit of cornstarch dissolved in equal parts water
