Buffalo Chicken Taquitos For The Win!

Do you love Buffalo Chicken Dip? Do you love flour tortillas? If you answered yes, this recipe is for you! I’ve combined two of my favorites into one super recipe…Buffalo Chicken Taquitos.

Buffalo Chicken Taquitos are the perfect handheld spin on Buffalo Chicken Dip. Easy Game Day food or appetizer to please a crowd.

My family can throw down on on some Buffalo Chicken Dip. It’s one of those recipes that’s a given on Game Day or when we have a gathering. Recently, I started thinking of a fun way to jazz up this recipe and Taquitos hit me like a ton of bricks. We love taquitos! I got to wondering how Buffalo Chicken Dip would taste if I rolled it up in a flour tortilla? AMAZING…that’s how they turned out!

You will love these Buffalo Chicken Taquitos if you love Buffalo Chicken Dip. Its the perfect handheld appetizer or weeknight meal.

The hubby is a huge connoisseur of Buffalo Wings and he loves these Buffalo Chicken Taquitos. Seriously, I love them too! I do change up one of the main ingredients from Buffalo Chicken Dip…canned chicken. I’m not a big fan of the canned chicken so I use a rotisserie chicken but it’s totally up to you.

Lacie’s Easy Peasy Pleasy Tips

  • The serving amount depends on if you keep the Buffalo Chicken Taquitos whole or cut them in half. If you need less, keep them whole. If you need more, cut them in half.
  • I love a dipper for Taquitos so I set out a small dipping bowl of Ranch. Since it’s Buffalo Chicken Taquitos, you could even try Blue Cheese as a dipper.
  • Add a bowl of Buffalo Sauce for those who are daring.

      Hi Emily! I haven’t tried to freeze this recipe yet…we haven’t had many leftovers…lol! Any leftovers we have, I keep in the fridge and my husband throws in the toaster oven throughout the week. I bet they would freeze up perfect though. I would just roll up the Taquitos and place in a freezer bag. Don’t bake. Then when you’re ready to cook, place frozen Taquitos on a baking sheet, seam side down and bake. I would keep the temp the same and allow for 5 to 10 more minutes of cooking time. Great question! I’ll freeze some next time just to make sure.

      I think 2 big chicken breasts would work for perfect for this recipe. If they are on the smaller side then you should add another one. Thanks for the great question Audri!

    You can also use 3 large cans of Kirkland Canned Chicken. And, I freeze them all the time. Works great!

      Canned chicken would work too. I used canned chicken for lots of recipes until rotisserie chicken became easily accessible. I just love a rotisserie chicken.
