SAVORY, CHEESY, AND SPICY

Buffalo chicken taquitos are a delicious and easy-to-make snack or appetizer that combines the savory flavors of shredded chicken with the creamy, cheesy goodness of shredded cheese and the spicy kick of buffalo sauce. They are typically made by rolling shredded chicken and cheese inside a corn tortilla, then deep-frying or baking them until crispy. They can be served with a variety of dipping sauces, such as ranch or blue cheese dressing, and are a great way to use up leftover chicken.


How to make buffalo chicken taquitos?

The key to these deliciously spicy taquitos is the buffalo sauce that is used as the base. There are many ways you can warm up this delicious red sauce, but for this recipe, I think rotisserie chicken works best.

The great thing about these taquitos is that you can customize them as much as you want. For example, feel free to add more or less of any ingredient! If you notice that there is not enough sauce, just mix in some cornstarch with a little bit of water and then add it to your buffalo sauce mixture.

If you want to add some extra heat, then I highly recommend adding some jalapeƱos. The bite from the jalapeƱo peppers perfectly compliments the buffalo chicken. Another great ingredient to add is celery. The crunch from the celery works nicely with the soft buffalo chicken.

Once you mix all of your ingredients together, you are ready to roll these delicious taquitos. Since this recipe makes a lot of food, it is easy to use a kitchen scale and individually weigh each taquito out so that they will be consistent! If you do not have kitchen scales, then place one tortilla on a plate and add buffalo chicken filling on top.

Once you are done with that, place another tortilla on top of the first one and press down firmly so that they stick together after being rolled up.

How To Make Buffalo chicken taquitos



Ingredients:

2 cups shredded cooked chicken

1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce

1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup diced celery

8 flour tortillas

Vegetable oil, for frying



Instructions:

In a large bowl, mix together the shredded chicken, buffalo wing sauce, blue cheese, sour cream, and diced celery.

Place a few tablespoons of the chicken mixture on each flour tortilla, and roll it up tightly.

Heat a few inches of vegetable oil in a deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the taquitos and fry them for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the taquitos from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain off any excess oil.

Serve the taquitos with additional buffalo wing sauce or sour cream for dipping.
