Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos are a quick & easy recipe, great for dinner or a snack! They can be made with flour tortillas or corn tortillas for a gluten free taquito!
When it comes to entertaining, there’s never a lack of Buffalo Style recipes on my party menu!
Slow Cooker Buffalo Cheesy Sausage Balls, Buffalo Chicken Dip and Buffalo Cheddar Biscuits are always a hit at parties, but I also like incorporating new recipes with buffalo sauce into the mix.
Buffalo Chicken Taquitos are so easy to make! I made a big batch of Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken early last week, then incorporated it into these taquitos, buffalo chicken dip for my annual holiday party and Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne for dinner.
With the cooked buffalo chicken, it only takes 20 minutes to make these taquitos, start to finish. They’re great for an after school snack, a fun twist on Taco Tuesday dinner or a party appetizer!
How do you make chicken taquitos in the oven?
Roll up cooked, shredded chicken, cheese and any other filling of your choice in flour or corn tortillas. For these taquitos, I tossed the chicken in buffalo sauce and added sautéed onions and jalapenos.
Place the rolled up taquitos seam side down on a baking sheet and into a 425°F oven for 10-12 minutes.
What goes with chicken taquitos?
Turn these taquitos into a complete dinner by serving them with Mexican Rice and Deconstructed Mexican Street Corn.
Serve them as a snack with a side of sour cream, ranch or blue cheese dressing, 5 Minute Homemade Salsa or Green Chili Avocado Salsa for dipping.
