Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

Happy Monday! I had to go through some recipe saves last week to freshen up my meal plans and discovered a few new ones that I’ll be sharing with you over the next few weeks. First up, these super easy Gluten-Free Buffalo Chicken Taquitos from Rachel Mansfield. They were a hit with my whole family and they’re on the healthier side, too. This recipe serves 4, so I doubled for my crew.

What You Need

  • 1 pound ground chicken or turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4–1/3 cup buffalo sauce of choice (mild or hot!)
  • 10–12 corn tortillas 
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Olive oil or avocado oil
  • Guacamole and salsa for serving

What You Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large skillet, add a splash of oil and the ground chicken or ground turkey, garlic and sea salt and black pepper and cook for about 5-10 minutes on medium heat until ready.
  3. Remove from heat and mix in buffalo sauce.
  4. Warm the tortillas in microwave for about 20 seconds so they are easy to roll (otherwise they will break apart–I’ve made that mistake!).
  5. Gently brush oil on each tortilla (both sides) then add a spoonful of chicken into the center followed by a sprinkle of cheese and roll up and add to baking sheet with folded side facing down (repeat for remaining tortillas and chicken).
  6. Drizzle oil on top of the taquitos in the baking sheet then bake in oven for 8 minutes then flip and bake for another 8 minutes or so.
  7. Serve with salsa and guacamole while hot!
