Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

I was a little frustrated tonight because this was the first blog post I did without using Picnik.  I had been holding out until it closed.  I didn’t really like the auto fix feature on Picmonkey, but I like the text features it has.  I decided for now to use the Picnik features that were transferred to Google Plus for editing and Picmonkey for text.  Hopefully that works okay.  What is everyone else using now that Picnik is closed?
These taquitos are fantastic! I love making quesadillas, including Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas.  When I saw these on Pinterest, I had to try them.  These are very similar to quesadillas, but they are baked in the oven.  These were really good and made a tasty and easy dinner.  These would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo.  These would also be a good appetizer, cut into pieces.  These are so good, I hope that you try them!
Buffalo Chicken Taquitos
{Recipe adapted from Taste and Tell
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/8 cup buffalo sauce
1 cup precooked chicken, cubed
1/8 cup blue cheese dressing
8-inch flour tortillas
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2.  In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and buffalo sauce, until mixed.  Stir in both shredded cheeses, the blue cheese dressing, and chicken, and mix until combined.
3.  Place 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture into the center of each tortilla and roll the tortilla up.  If needed, microwave the tortillas for 30 seconds to soften them.  Place on a baking sheet and then spray the taquitos with cooking spray.  
4.  Bake for 17-20 minutes or until golden brown, flipping the taquitos half way through. Serve with blue cheese dressing for dipping.

  1. Ohhh.. these look yummy! I love anything in a taco :) I dont have the cream cheese or mozzarella or Id make them for dinner this week. BOO!

  2. Yum! We are on the same page tonight, I just posteda buffalo chicken recipe too!
    I am using Picmonkey. So far, I like it!

    • Yum, I love finding new buffalo chicken recipes. I liked Picmonkey, except for the auto fix, maybe I will play around with it some more. Thanks!

  3. Since all my pictures are stored on Picasa, I am still able to edit using Picnik. These look awesome.!

    • I didn’t realize that you could do that, that’s a good idea. I just uploaded them to Google Plus, but it was kind of annoying. Thanks!

  4. oh yum those look so so delicious!


  5. These look so yummy. I love taquitos, but would have never thought of doing buffalo chicken. Do you think whole wheat tortillas would work as well? Those are the kind we get from WIC.

    BTW, I’ve been using Picmonkey for a couple weeks now. And I’m liking it so far. I just miss the way Picnic saved your history for you… :(

    • I think whole wheat tortillas would work well. I’ve never tried it with this recipe, but I have made quesadillas with whole wheat tortillas and it worked just as well.

      I miss features of Picnik too, I’m just stubborn in accepting change.

  6. Stop by Thursday. I’m featuring you from Must Try Monday!
