Keto Taquitos

If you love the bold flavor of buffalo chicken, you’ll love this choice as a delicious mix-in! If not, consider another flavor like low sugar BBQ sauce, or even taco spiced shredded chicken or beef. There’s definitely a lot of directions you can go with this idea! Don’t be afraid to adapt it to your tastes.


1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 1/2 c. shredded chicken
1/3 c. red enchilada sauce
2 tbsp. freshly chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish
Kosher salt
1 c. shredded cheddar
1 c. shredded monterey jack
Sour cream, for serving (optional)


Preheat oven to 375° and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until slightly soft, 3 minutes. Add garlic and spices and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes more. Add chicken and enchilada sauce, then bring mixture to a simmer. Stir in cilantro, season with salt, and remove from heat.
Make taquito shells: In a medium bowl, mix together cheeses. Divide mixture into 6 piles on prepared baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and slightly golden around the edges. Let cool 2 to 4 minutes, then add a small pile of chicken and roll tightly. Repeat until all taquitos are made.
Garnish with cilantro and serve with sour cream, for dipping.
