Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

Easy and delicious Buffalo Chicken Taquitos - a great dinner idea or served as an appetizer at your next get together.

Who else LOVES a good appetizer? My husband and I have a tradition every year for New Year’s Eve of making a meal that consists entirely of appetizers, and it may be my favorite meal of the year. If it’s bite-sized and delicious, then sign me up! This time of year is the appetizer’s time to shine, between all of the holiday parties, and snacking on game day.

There are so many different and delicious varieties of appetizer, but I have to say that I’m in love with anything involving buffalo sauce. These buffalo chicken taquitos are the perfect appetizer! They’re savory and cheesy, with just a subtle hint of spice, and a crisp outer shell. They take just a few minutes to make, so they’re easy to make any time you need a delicious snack!

You’ll start by mixing up a simple and delicious filling made up of shredded chicken, three different types of cheese, and buffalo sauce. Then, roll it all up in a soft flour tortilla. Place the tortillas on a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet, and bake until crisp. The cooling rack helps the air circulate around the taquitos, so they’ll get crisp and delicious all around.

I served mine with some fresh celery sticks and bleu cheese dressing for dipping on the side, and they were fantastic. The creamy chicken filling has the perfect flavor, and the combination with the blue cheese is so delicious!

If you’re serving these at a party, you could easily slice them into smaller, bite-sized pieces and put them on toothpicks. If buffalo sauce isn’t your thing, you could easily substitute barbecue sauce for a different but equally delicious appetizer. These buffalo chicken taquitos are always a favorite!
