I adore Buffalo Chicken. Not that I love chicken so much but I love the hot sauce. All different kinds. But Buffalo sauce is so adaptable and of course goes great with chicken. Like they were meant to be together. Anyway I am always on the lookout for a recipe to pair the two together. I came across Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos. I had all of the ingredients. Win! And t he taste was super. Makes a great meal and appetizer. Win win!

Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

Adapted from Taste And Tell
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 8 Taquitos

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/8 cup buffalo sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • 1/8 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 can (12.5-ounce) Swanson® Premium Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained
  • 8 8-inch flour tortillas
  • coarse Kosher salt
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and buffalo sauce. Mix well. Stir in the Monterey jack cheese, blue cheese crumbles and chicken; mix well.
  • Place 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture down the center of each tortilla and roll up. If needed, microwave the tortillas for about 30 seconds to make them soft and pliable enough to roll. Place on a baking sheet. Spray the taquitos with cooking spray, then sprinkle with coarse salt.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 17-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with blue cheese dressing for dipping, if desired.
