Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

I’ve seen several recipes for buffalo chicken taquitos on Pinterest lately, but none of them were exactly what I was looking for, so I made a few adjustments and came up with this version.  I typically get between 14-16 taquitos, depending on the amount of chicken I use.

Rotisserie chicken is great for taquitos, but you could also cook and shred your own chicken.  And don’t be afraid to add a little extra cheese or hot sauce, depending on your preferences.  These freeze well (either before or after baking).
