If you’ve been around a while, you know that I love buffalo flavoring and hot sauce, especially on my chicken (and if I’m honest, on my broccoli and potatoes, too), like bacon buffalo chicken dip and individual buffalo chicken and vegetable crudités cups.
This time, I set out to make something yummy, buffalo, with chicken, a little crunch, and I came up with this deliciousness.
Easy Buffalo Chicken Taquitos
I had boiled some boneless-skinless chicken breast for a previous meal and set some aside. Once it was cool, I put the chicken breast in my food processor and pulsed it until it was very small.
Taking 2 cups of the chopped chicken breast, I added one cup of hot sauce. You can adjust as you see fit. You want it to have flavor.
Preheat a pan on the stove with cooking oil of your choice. I used 2T of canola oil
I placed 1.5 Tablespoons of the flavored chicken in a corn tortilla and rolled it up tight and placed it seam-side down to start in the oil cooking and rotating until browned on all sides.
Once browned, I removed them from the oil, and placed them on a paper towel to cool (and absorb any extra oil).
Okay, I admit, I ate some nice and hot right then and there and yum! They were a hit. They were also a hit with the kids and the husband.
For the family and the big game in a few weeks, I will serve these with Naturally Fresh’s® Classic Ranch made with their own buttermilk found in the refrigerated section at the grocery store.
Naturally Fresh® is a line of high-quality, homemade-tasting salad dressings and dips with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. It is also free of MSG. The end result is always a variety of dressings, dips and sauces that enhance your meals and snacks with fresh, delicious flavor.
The Naturally Fresh® Classic Ranch is great dip for the Buffalo Chicken Taquitos, but I know many would love it with their Bleu Cheese, too.
