HOLY HATS! You guys are in for a real delight over here if you are making these buffalo chicken taquitos today.

These have quickly become one of our family’s favorites (yes Ez eats buffalo sauce ha!) and they are a healthier version of the classic. They are oven-baked, made with all gluten-free ingredients and dinner comes together in under 30 minutes. Nothing is better!

Each taquito is filled with buffalo chicken, cheese and I dip them in some guacamole, salsa and you can use anything else you wish. Feel free to add guacamole into the taquitos too or anything else you are craving. I try not to make them too heavy or they don’t roll/stay together as well.

These get extra crispy in the oven too – you would think they are fried I am telling you! So crazy in the best way ever.

If you make these taquitos and enjoy, let me know what you think! I hope you love them as much as we do.

What ingredients you need to make these healthy oven-baked taquitos: 

  • Ground chicken
  • Garlic powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Buffalo sauce of choice (mild or hot!)
  • Corn tortillas
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Olive oil or avocado oil
  • Guacamole and salsa for serving

How to bake gluten-free buffalo chicken taquitos: 

  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, 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
  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)

  1. This recipe was incredibly delish! Note to self.. Trader Joe’s corn tortillas are not the way to go here. They all crumbled upon rolling. Even though they looked crazy after baking they were extremely yummy. I’d recommend a more pliable corn tortilla!
