Tasty Tuesday- Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

As I was searching on Pinterest for something to make for dinner a while back, I came across a pin for Buffalo Chicken Taquitos.  At the time we were on a big buffalo anything kick, so I knew I had to try them.  My husband absolutely LOVES this recipe, and it has quickly become one of our favorite dinners. These taquitos are super easy and fast to make, and would be great for a party.  I love the crispy outside and gooey inside, and of course the buffalo flavor does not disappoint.
