I really need to set a Google alert on my phone for any time the words “buffalo chicken” come across the Internet. Hopefully, my phone would be ringing off of my desk with delicious alerts.
This recipe combines two of my loves: buffalo chicken and cream cheese. I modified the original recipe to add bleu cheese because it’s practically a rule to serve bleu cheese with buffalo chicken. These are quick and fun finger foods for a Friday night.
Buffalo Chicken Taquitos
4 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
12 soft taco, flour tortillas
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup bleu cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup hot sauce
1/3 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp Mrs. Dash
1 tsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Lay out a tortilla; fill with approximately 1/4-1/3 cup chicken and 2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese. Tightly roll up taquito and place on a greased baking sheet; repeat until chicken is gone. Brush taquitos with vegetable oil on all sides.
Bake for 15-18 minutes; rotate them every 5 minutes, until golden brown.
