Ingredients

  • Half a red onion diced
  • 2 carrots peeled and diced
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt divided
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce I used Frank‚Äôs Red Hot
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 3 cups shredded chicken I use a rotisserie chicken and shred the white meat
  • 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 12 small tortillas I used a gluten-free almond flour kind, whole wheat or flour work too
  • dash sea salt for sprinkling on tortilla before baking

For topping,

  • Guacamole
  • Pickled shallots
  • Blue cheese crumbles
  • Blue cheese or ranch
  • Chopped cilantro

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven on to 425. Grease a large baking sheet.
  2. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet. Add the diced red onion, carrots, and celery and cook until softened, 4-6 minutes. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt.
  3. In a large bowl, add the greek yogurt, cream cheese, buffalo sauce, and remaining garlic salt and stir until well-combined. Add in the shredded chicken, cooked veggies, and cheddar cheese and mix until everything is well-combined.
  4. Add a generous amount of filling to each tortilla and tightly wrap to incase all the filling. Brush each with a little olive oil and sprinkle on some sea salt.
  5. Bake the taquitos for about 14-16 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until golden brown and crispy.
  6. Serve with desired toppings. Enjoy!
