BBQ chicken taquitos use your favorite BBQ sauce and rotisserie chicken for a quick and easy dinner or snack! Just mix, roll, and bake!


2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken, recommend using white meat only
4 ounces softened cream cheese
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup diced red onions
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon chicken bouillon powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Vegetable oil for brushing the tortillas
Flour tortillas, taco sized


1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl combine the chicken and the cream cheese. Next, add in the BBQ sauce and stir to combine. Last, add in the Mozzarella, onions, garlic powder, smoked paprika, chicken bouillon, salt and pepper. Stir well until everything is incorporated.

2. Begin making the taquitos by placing about 2-3 tablespoons of the BBQ chicken mixture into the center of the flour tortillas. See post above for instructional photo! Roll the tortillas closed and place seam-side down on a baking sheet. Repeat until all the chicken filling has been used, should make approximately 15 taquitos.

3. Brush the tops and sides of the tortillas with vegetable oil, sprinkle with additional garlic powder and a bit of salt. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

To serve, let cool for a few minutes…these will be HOT on the inside. Serve with ranch and extra BBQ sauce for dipping.


If you use any other oil than vegetable oil it will affect how fast the tortillas brown. If you’re not using vegetable oil keep an eye on them and you may need to adjust the cooking time down.
