Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

Now that I am selling CAbi, I don't need to shop for clothes, so I can spend my money on accessories! I went to a jewelry party today for a really cool new brand called chloe & isabel. I adored so many of their things, you should check it out too!

As you know I am obsessed with buffalo sauce. The other day I ran across a taquito recipe on this blog and thought, "Omg, that would be great with buffalo chicken!" So I created these and now they are my new favorite recipe!! Plus the chicken is made in a crockpot so it is super easy. I also like that the taquitos are baked so they are not as fattening. If you are also a buffalo lover, you should try these asap!

Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

8 chicken tenders
1/4 cup, plus 2 Tbsp franks red hot
2 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8-10 corn tortillas
blue cheese or ranch dressing

Place frozen chicken tenders in a crock pot. Pour chicken broth and franks red hot over the chicken. 

Place cream cheese on top. Cover with a lid and cook for either 3 hours on high or 5 hours on low.

 Preheat oven to 425.

Once chicken is cooked, shred chicken with 2 forks.

Stir cream cheese into chicken and sauce.
Remove chicken from sauce, drain most of the sauce from the chicken

Stir shredded cheese into chicken.

Heat 3 corn tortillas in the microwave at a time for 30 seconds. Place about 3 Tbsp of chicken mixture on each tortilla. Roll it up and place seam side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Spray the taquitos with cooking spray. Bake for 15 minutes.

Enjoy dipped in blue cheese or ranch dressing.

In other news... I entered my Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti recipe in the Dream Dinner's employee recipe contest (nationwide) and it won first place! It will be released to the national menu soon! Try it out by clicking here.

Looks great! I wonder if you could substitute plain Greek yogurt for the cream cheese?
