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 Recipe Tips:

    • If you love the bold flavor of buffalo wing sauce, you’ll love this choice as a delicious mix-in! If not, consider another flavor like keto-friendly BBQ sauce, or even taco-spiced shredded chicken or beef.
    • Different brands of cheese can affect the end flavor which is why we loved using a Mexican-blend for these shells.
