Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

The husband likes football. I’m not such a big fan.

I mean, I like the food that comes along with it, but I don’t enjoy the screaming and the jumping and the cursing.

Oh, and about the life sized football player sticker on the wall in the man cave? Well, it’s sort of cute. I mean, my daughter has a bunch of Toy Story stickers all over her bedroom walls and my husband has a 6 foot 3 inch Jay Cutler sticker in his room. I think it’s sweet.

Besides being adorable that my husband decorates with stickers, I’ve spent countless hours wondering if Jay was wearing a cup while his photograph was taken for that sticker. I mean, it’s right there. On my wall. Life sized. You guys would wonder, too, if you had to walk by him all the time.

How in the world did I end up talking about boy parts on my food blog? Let’s pretend that didn’t happen.

Football. We were talking about football.

It’s kinda dumb, except for the food.

Last week I made these scrumptious four ingredient Buffalo Chicken Taquitos for the game. Then I ate them all while the boys were busy shouting at the TV.

Buffalo Chicken Taquitos


1 deli rotisserie chicken, meat shredded (about 1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken)
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup to 1 1/2 cups Frank's Red Hot Sauce
12 6-inch flour tortillas
cooking spray


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Pull the meat from the chicken and shred with your fingers into small pieces. Add to a large mixing bowl, along with the cream cheese and 1/2 cup of Frank's Red Hot Sauce. Stir to combine. Taste mixture and add more hot sauce as desired. I used about 1 1/2 cups of hot sauce, but add slowly and taste as you go.
Drop a couple spoonfuls in the center of each tortilla and roll them up. Place on a baking sheet and spray lightly with cooking spray.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Serve with ranch dressing or blue cheese, if desired.

    I’m more of a football food fan than an actual football fan too. But if necessary, I can surely pretend to be a football fan if it comes with buffalo chicken taquitos. LOVE this, Karly! Even more, I love how simple it is. Rotisserie chicken is a life-saver!

    Oh, cups. When I was my dad’s statistician for the wrestling team, that’s how I felt when I was around boys in spandex. It’s just… there. And awkward. Can we stop? Yespleaseokaythanks.

    These taquitos need to happen. I love taquitos and I love buffalo chicken and therefore, I kinda sorta love their love-child.

    i don’t like football either Karly. I just watch for the drinking and the food. But I’m good at pretending to be into it! I love buffalo chicken anything… I recently found a WINNING buff chicken nacho recipe. But you just cannot go wrong with buffalo chicken and mexican!

    Yum! These sound so easy and much better than watching football :)

    Thankfully wall space is so limited in NYC that the boyfriend has not dared suggest decorating any walls with any life-sized hopefully-cup-wearing men. He HAS, however, hinted that he would like some football food to appear in front of him during games. I’ve yet to comply but I think that these might just be the perfect place to start!

    I watch football every once and awhile but usually I get bored and stuff my face with food. And if these where on the table in front of me, you bet you’re bottom dollar, I would munch on these.

    These sound so delicious! I might have to make them for my grandma, though, because my husband is not a fan of spicy stuff! I sure love the looks of these!

    I made flautas recentlly that were similar to these! Love them! I dipped them in a sauce made of chili sauce and Greek yogurt. I’m going to try your idea!

    Your so funny! I would wonder the same thing.

    I recently made a Mexican style torta, using buffalo chicken rather than the traditional meats. It was double D-lish…thanks for another idea that will let me enjoy all of the yumminess of buffalo style chicken, without all the fuss of dealing with the bones in traditional wings!!!

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    a few months of hard work due to no back up.
    Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
