Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

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.


My kids are all fans of spicy food, but I have one who is especially fond of anything “buffalo chicken,” so it’s a theme I incorporate into a lot of my recipes. Taquitos just happen to be one of our favorite game day eats, because they’re portable and easy to eat, and this creamy buffalo version is definitely a favorite.

Rotisserie chicken is a great time-saving trick for making taquitos (and so many other chicken dishes), 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.

I typically get between 14-16 taquitos, depending on the amount of chicken I use. These freeze also well (either before or after baking), which makes all the teenage boys living here happy!
