As I’ve mentioned time and time again on this blog, I am obsessed with Buffalo Chicken anything. And I’m always experimenting with new healthy, and low calorie ways to get my craving satisfied.

Over the years, I’ve created a variety of Buffalo Chicken Weight Watchers Recipes, but these Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos are topping my list right now. Holy Moly they were good. A bit spicy for the kids, but my husband and I TORE THESE UP!

If you have some leftover rotisserie chicken on hand, it works great in this recipe. I didn’t, so I just boiled a couple of chicken breasts. It’s a very quick and easy recipe to throw together and makes a fantastic Weight Watchers party appetizer or game day food.

    What can I use in place of the cream cheese in baked buffalo chicken taquitos. We don’t like cheese. Thanks so much.

    • I made these last night with light sour cream ( out of cream cheese) and it was DELICIOUS! Thanks for the recipe!
