Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

I’m tossing another Super Bowl dish at ya. Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos. Go long.

I’m so lame. I’m sorry.

My darling husband isn’t much for appetizer or snack-type foods. Is he crazy?!! I can make a meal out of appetizers so most of the appetizers I make, he doesn’t touch. I know a few things that he can’t resist though and one of those things is buffalo chicken. The man loves all things buffalo chicken. Last year, I made these buffalo chicken bites. This year, it’s buffalo chicken taquitos. Because my man also loves taquitos. And well, so do I.

While taquitos are usually fried, I don’t do frying in this house. First, I’m scared that I will burn myself or my house down. And second, it adds way more fat and calories. I would rather eat a bunch of appetizers instead of just one so if I can have a few lower fat appetizers, I am a happy girl! So I opted to bake these. The filling is easy and lower in fat as well. I dipped mine in ranch dressing and my buffalo fanatic husband dipped his in additional buffalo sauce. He can never get enough!
