Buffalo Chicken Taquitos Recipe

Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

Buffalo Chicken Taquitos are a delicious blend of chicken, cream cheese, and buffalo sauce (with other seasonings) rolled up with some mozzarella cheese into a taquito. These are made with boneless chicken breasts, precooked and shredded up to add to the sauce mixture. You can make these as spicy or mild as you want, depending on how much buffalo sauce you put in the recipe. I like mine pretty mild, so if you want a bit of a kick add more buffalo sauce. Or you can do like my husband and add some buffalo sauce on top if everyone doesn’t want spicy. I like to dip my taquito in either sour cream or ranch dressing.
