Oh my lord, I had no idea this could be so tasty and only 3 ingredients!

Who can resist the tantalizing combo of spicy and cheesy in a bite-sized delight? Today, I’m thrilled to share a recipe that’s become a staple in my weeknight lineup: Keto Buffalo Chicken Taquitos. Infusing the classic Mexican street food with a fiery buffalo twist, these taquitos are a carb-conscious eater’s dream. They’re ideal for game nights, quick dinners, or as a convenient meal prep option for a grab-and-go lunch.
Serve these scrumptious taquitos with crisp celery sticks and a side of blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping. For a more substantial meal, pair them with a simple keto-friendly salad of greens, assorted veggies, and a vinaigrette.
3-Ingredient Keto Buffalo Chicken Taquitos
Servings: Makes about 10 taquitos
Ingredients:
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken

1/3 cup buffalo sauce

10 slices of a sturdy cheese like provolone or mozzarella

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix the shredded chicken and buffalo sauce in a bowl until well coated.

Lay a cheese slice on the parchment and bake for 4-5 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and slightly golden at the edges.

Remove from the oven, let the cheese cool for a minute, then place a spoonful of the buffalo chicken at one edge of the cheese.

Gently roll the cheese around the chicken to form a taquito. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

Return the taquitos to the oven for 2-3 minutes to ensure they are heated through and hold together.

Allow a brief cooling period before serving (watch out for hot cheese!).

Variations & Tips:

Add a twist with green onions or cilantro mixed into the buffalo chicken.

Not a fan of buffalo sauce? Try BBQ or a keto-friendly teriyaki sauce.

To keep the taquitos from unraveling while baking, place them seam-side-down and avoid overstuffing.

These taquitos reheat well in an air fryer or oven, perfect for meal prep.
