Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

Making your own taquitos right at home couldn’t be any easier with these buffalo chicken taquitos!  Serve these taquitos for dinner or even an appetizer.  Buffalo Chicken Taquitos It’s kind of become a tradition for us to eat taquitos while we watch The Walking Dead, and since the new season started we’ve reinstated taquito night.  We’re such rebels, I know. 

Ever since making my baked cream cheese chicken taquitos, my husband has been on a mission to make every kind of taquito imaginable.  Some of his ideas have been a little, well, crazy or off the wall.  But when he mentioned a buffalo version I knew he had come up with a winner. Buffalo Chicken Taquitos These taquitos are kind of a fusion of my buffalo chicken dip and these taquitos, which are two of the more popular recipes on my site.  I can’t blame you all though, I love both of these recipes too because they’re delicious.  So I got to work in the kitchen to combine both of these dishes and the end result was pretty incredible.

These taquitos are a little healthier than the store bought versions since they’re baked instead of fried.  Also knowing that there’s actual meat in them too is always a good thing, right?  You can definitely taste the buffalo sauce in these taquitos, but I can assure you they’re not too spicy.  These taquitos are perfect dipped in a little ranch too.  Ranch is always necessary. Buffalo Chicken Taquitos These taquitos make a great quick dinner option because they’re easy to put together and only need to bake for about 15 minutes.  These would make a great appetizer for football season too.  Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
