Perfect for the big game, or for a Friday night, any buffalo chicken lover will love these Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos!

Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

I’m so sorry, but I totally had to go here.  You would think that by now, I’d be tired of the whole buffalo chicken thing.  But obviously, I’m obsessed.  (If you missed it, I even compiled a list of 51 different buffalo chicken inspired recipes from around the web.)  And I’m not even going to pretend that this will be the last buffalo chicken recipe that I will post, because I’ll probably think up something else tomorrow that I just have to make.  So consider yourself warned.

I was thinking about the big game coming up, and being obsessed with the food part of Super Bowl Sunday, I was trying to come up with some good ideas for football food.  Then I remembered the Chicken, Bacon and Cream Cheese Mini Taquitos that I made last year around this time.  Taquitos are great game food, in my opinion, and buffalo anything is perfect for game day.  So from that, these chicken taquitos were born!

I took some inspiration from the delicious Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos that I made awhile back from Our Best Bites.  I cannot make baked taquitos without sprinkling them with salt because of those chicken taquitos.  The buffalo chicken filling is similar to the filling I used on the Buffalo Chicken Pizza Rolls.  (Which would also be perfect for game day!)  These are made in a snap by using Swanson® Premium Chunk Chicken, so you can have them done in just over half an hour.  Easy, delicious and crowd pleasing!!

Perfect for the big game, or for a Friday night, any buffalo chicken lover will love these Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos!
Serves: 8 taquitos
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ⅛ cup buffalo sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • ⅛ cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 can (12.5-ounce) Swanson® Premium Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained
  • 8 8-inch flour tortillas
  • coarse Kosher salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and buffalo sauce. Mix well. Stir in the Monterey jack cheese, blue cheese crumbles and chicken; mix well.
  3. Place 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture down the center of each tortilla and roll up. If needed, microwave the tortillas for about 30 seconds to make them soft and pliable enough to roll. Place on a baking sheet. Spray the taquitos with cooking spray, then sprinkle with coarse salt.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 17-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with blue cheese dressing for dipping, if desired.

    These are fabulous! I am such a fan of all things Buffalo and incorporating this delicious Buffalo chicken into taquitos is such a clever idea!

  12. Cassie says:

    You TOTALLY HAD to go here. I think we were meant to be friends! 🙂

  13. Joanne says:

    One can never tire of buffalo-flavored anything. It’s a scientific fact.

  14. Liz says:

    Chicken and red hot sauce were made for each other!

  15. Cara says:

    “buffalo” has got to be the most popular flavor when it comes to superbowl foods. One can never have too many recipes!

  16. Kalyn says:

    Oh my, this sounds fantastic. I’d switch to whole wheat tortillas and I’d be good.

  17. beti says:

    the best combination ever, taquitos are always great for almost any ocassion, yours look mouth watering

  18. I love buffalo sauce on ANYTHING! And I love baked taquitos, one of my favorite posts from last year was a baked chicken and roasted red pepper taquito, I bet these are to die for!

  19. YUM! We adore chicken taquitos, and I’m sure these will be a hit too! Definitely trying this, thanks!

  20. Kristy says:

    Now these look good! I’m not usually that into buffalo chicken (my boys are) but I could easily get behind these. 🙂

  21. I could never tire of a good Buffalo chicken recipe. I can’t get enough of Frank’s:-). These look yummy. Perfect for dipping in Blue Cheese, too!

  22. JehanP says:

    I’ve been obsessed with thinking of snacks for the Superbowl party also so I can totally relate. While I’ve made creamy chicken taquitos in the past, I’ve never had the buffalo version…I will be trying these..thanks.

  23. Totally agree with Becki (earlier comment), I am always up for another buffalo chicken recipe! Thanks for the inspiration!

  24. Wanda Lynn says:

    Made these for dinner last night! Husband and son loved them! Very similar to chicken wing dip and they were absolutely amazing, I will be making these again. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

  25. GoneCoastal says:

    I have made baked taquitos for years! I actually make three kinds at once; beef, chicken, and vegetarian with beans. I use choppoed onion and corn in all of them. TIP: The absolute BEST chicken is a store bought rotisserie shredded right when you get it home. Spray a little Pam on them before baking; the salt will stick better and they will be crispy without being greasy!

  26. Oh how perfect! I have a house warming this weekend & a super bowl party coming up. I can just see all the men in the room gobbling these up! Thank you so much–printing recipe now 🙂

  27. My goodness, these look like tasty little snacks! My guys will go crazy for them!

  28. Becca says:

    Saved this forever ago on FoodGawker and have been holding out for Superbowl Sunday. They were a hit! I got many compliments from my friends. I’m from Texas, so we love TexMex and this was a great fusion. I would add a bit more wing sauce next time to accentuate the flavors. I also used smaller tortillas to produce more authentically-sized taquitos.

  29. Kris says:

    I made these tonight for a Super Bowl party. They were delicious!!! I liked dipping them in ranch dressing. Way to go Giants!!!

  30. Cari says:

    My family love these and this year I’m switching them up a bit. I’m featuring this recipe as part of my way to makeover Thanksgiving Leftovers. I’ll be swapping out the chicken for leftover turkey. Check it out here. http://reachforthestarberries.com/2012/11/20/great-ways-to-makeover-thanksgiving-leftovers/

  31. Danielle says:

    Hi, I noticed in the background of your picture the hot sauce, but your recipe says buffalo sauce. Is that wing sauce I see on the store shelves or hot sauce? I noticed Becca used wing sauce, others use frank’s hot sauce.

  32. Kelly says:

    Yum! I just made a scaled down batch of these. Already in my recipe file!

  33. Brad says:

    Making these tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe.

  34. How could anyone be tired of Buffalo chicken? These look divine!

  35. Iva says:

    What else can be used instead of blue cheese…. I don’t like blue cheese. Thanks for the help.

  36. Maeve says:

    My daughter (she’s 10) is a hot sauce fanatic, so I decided to try those for dinner tonight. I did add a bit more hot sauce, because I know how much she loves it, and I left out the bleu cheese since we don’t have any, and just as soon as they’re done I’m sure we’ll have rave reviews for them. Thanks so much for the recipe, my daughter will be a VERY happy little girl! 🙂
