Something that I was earlier totally unfamiliar with, is buffalo sauce. I started to see it in so many websites and blogs, in so many recipes that I had to find out what it was.
As I’ve understood, buffalo sauce is a quite American thing. It’s like hot sauce, with a big splash of vinegar. It should also have a flavor of butter in it. You can prepare your own buffalo sauce, but I started to hunt for the real American one, and could find a bottle from a big market nearby. I’ve seen from several recipes, that a brand called Frank’s Red Hot is quite popular when preparing food with buffalo sauce. Mine was called Texas Pete Hot Sauce, and I suppose they are all quite the same.
The recipe for the following dish is adapted from Taste and Tell. This eventually became one of the best mexican foods, and definitely one of the best comfort foods I have ever prepared.
I highly recommend you to try it out!
Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos
350g chicken breast, cooked and finely shredded
8 wheat tortillas
250g cream cheese, softened
50g blue cheese, crumbled (I actually used 100g blue cheese flavored cream cheese, which I recommend if you can find it)
100g yellow cheddar, grated
5-6 tablespoons buffalo sauce
2 spring onions, finely chopped
handful of fresh coriander, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
For the dressing:
200g creme fraiche & some crumbled blue cheese
Preheat oven to 175C°
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients except for tortillas and olive oil. Mix well.
Place 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture in the middle of each tortilla and spread vertically. Roll the tortillas up and place the seam side down on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Brush the rolls with oil and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. They should be nice and golden when ready.
Mix the dressing ingredients and garnish the dish with some fresh coriander.
Serve with the dressing and buffalo sauce.
