Keto buffalo chicken taquitos on serving dish

Love crispy chicken taquitos?

Make this delicious keto-friendly version 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.

Buffalo chicken rocks!

If you love the bold flavor of buffalo chicken, you’ll love this choice as a delicious mix-in! If not, consider another flavor like low sugar BBQ sauce, or even taco spiced shredded chicken or beef. There’s definitely a lot of directions you can go with this idea! Don’t be afraid to adapt it to your tastes.

What a great snack or appetizer or main dish!

It’s honestly a yummy dish even if you’re not eating low carb or keto. This idea is easy to double and triple the recipe for a larger gathering as well (in fact, these are SO good, you might regret not making more). They turn out crispy and so full of flavor!

We really enjoyed these Buffalo Chicken Taquitos, and we think you will as well!

    These were so easy to make and super yummy! I was definitely surprised at how satisfying they were too. Thanks for the recipe guys!

    • Lina D

      Yay! That’s so awesome to hear!

  3. Andrea

    I’ve tried to make the cheese shells before but they were SO SALTY… any recommendations on cheese?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, did you have them with the buffalo sauce above? Sometimes that sauce can be salty. If so, maybe use less or check for one that may be lower in sodium. If not, you could also grab a cheese that is low sodium or opt for Mozzarella cheese instead. Hope that helps!
