Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

It’s that time of the week again!!  The day when Dana and I bring you 2 new recipes!!  This month we are doing our chicken series.  We all need more chicken recipes, I know I do!

Today I am sharing with you the recipe for Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos.  This recipe has been floating around Pinterest like crazy and there are a 1000 different recipes for it.  I took a couple and mixed them together to make one I liked.

This recipe could not be simpler!  Shredded chicken gets mixed with a touch of cream cheese and your favorite hot sauce, then rolled in a tortilla and baked till crispy perfection!  Don’t forget to serve lots of ranch on the side for dipping :)

I learned a trick from Our Best Bites a few years ago on how to make perfect baked taquitos.  You spray your pan with a little cooking spray, spray the taquitos, sprinkle on some kosher salt and bake!  You get that crispy texture without all the calories and hassle of frying.

So whip up a batch of these for your family tonight and watch them disappear!
