Keto buffalo chicken taquitos on serving dish

This easy Mexican-inspired dish is sure to be a hit!

Make our delicious keto Buffalo chicken taquitos by replacing traditional corn tortillas with crispy cheese shells (a fun variation of these one ingredient keto taco shells)! Plus, you’ll appreciate how simple this recipe is. I love that you can use leftover rotisserie chicken for this or shred leftover chicken breast meat.

Hip tips for making these Keto Buffalo Chicken Taquitos:

  • Different types of cheese can affect the end flavor of your taquito wraps, which is why we recommend using a Mexican blend of shredded cheese for these shells. There are other types that may work as well. Just be sure to choose a low-moisture cheese that hardens when you bake it, like cheddar.
  • When preparing your shells, do your best to make sure that you’re using a thin layer of cheese and forming your circles into a uniform size – about six inches in diameter. That way, they’ll all be finished baking at about the same time.

    Can you recommend another bbq sauce that doesn’t contain sucralose?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Diana! Primal kitchen makes an unsweetened BBQ sauce that you can add your own sweetener too. Hope this helps❤
