These Buffalo Chicken Taquitos are the perfect appetizer or meal for Game Day. You can easily adjust the amounts to make a little or a lot!
We eat a lot of tortillas at our house. As a side to Mexican dishes, as quesadillas, as a sweet treat and more. Once I discovered TortillaLand tortillas, I have never looked back. So when I was asked to create an appetizer for game day, you can imagine my excitement! It’s a product I’ve been using for years and I always grab a package when I go to Costco. They are uncooked tortillas so you can make them fresh when you need them. Who doesn’t love fresher tasting tortillas? There’s just five simple recognizable ingredients – wheat flour, water, canola oil, salt sugar.
I love just cooking some up and spreading butter on them as a snack. Or adding some cinnamon sugar and rolling it up as a light dessert. You can get a package of 50 tortillas at Costco for a great price. I made an easy appetizer with these TortillaLand tortillas. I made a great Buffalo Chicken filling to put on them. All you need to do is cook the tortillas on a skillet for about 30 seconds each side, add the Buffalo Chicken mixture, roll and bake. Easy peasy!
My husband loves Buffalo Chicken wings and other spicy foods. I knew I wanted to make a recipe that had a kick just for him. And the best part: I love these taquitos, too! I used 1/3 cup of hot sauce and it was just right for me. My husband would have liked them a little spicier. So maybe a 1/2 cup at least. I boiled my chicken and shredded it before adding the rest of the ingredients. You could also make them in the slow cooker if you wanted a lot of chicken and taquitos. My amount made 5 taquitos that you can cut into halves for appetizers or serve whole as a light dish. I liked mine dipped into ranch dressing. You can serve it with some carrots and celery other game day food.
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, about 3 breasts
- 1 Tbsp butter
- ⅓ cup hot sauce (I used Frank's)
- 1 Tbsp Ranch dressing mix, dry
- 5 TortillaLand tortillas, cooked
- Boil the chicken in a pot of water until cooked.
- Meanwhile, whisk together the hot sauce, butter and Ranch mix. Set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Shred the cooked chicken and stir into the hot sauce mixture.
- Cook the tortillas according to package directions.
- Place a spoonful of chicken down the centers of each tortillas. Roll tightly and place onto a baking sheet.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
