Buffalo Chicken Taquitos and Wholly Guacamole dip for Super Bowl #HOMEGATING #giveaway

I grew up in a household where watching football was our second nature. Every Saturday and Sunday during the fall meant huge feasts of grilled burgers, hot dogs, bbq and always a great time. We loved both tailgating and having parties at home, also known as #HOMEGATING. Those are some of my favorite memories to date. Super Bowl Sunday was all that and much more.We would have a huge homegating party with the entire family.
One of my favorite football foods is perfectly cooked chicken wings. I crave the flavor combination of spicy buffalo wing sauce, cooled down by a creamy ranch. This year, I decided to try something a little different out and make a dish seen all over pinterest - Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos. Instead of a traditional ranch dipping sauce, I combined Wholly Guacamole and light ranch. Make sure you enter the #HOMEGATING giveaway below for a cooler full of Wholly Guacamole goodness!

Gabe freaked out over this dish. He also thought they were fried and didn't believe me when I explained that they were baked. I modified the original recipe I found online a bit and this is now a keeper recipe in our house.

Buffalo Chicken Taquitos 
(adapted from Real Women of Philadelphia)
Ingredients
4 cups chicken, cooked and shredded (I used shredded rotisserie chicken)
12 soft taco, flour tortillas
2 cups mozzarella cheese, divided
4 ounces Philadelphia cream cheese
1/3 cup Frank's hot sauce
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon Cavenders greek seasoning
1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Canola Oil Spray

Directions
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a small sauce pot over medium low heat, melt butter. Add Cavenders, garlic powder and Cajun seasoning. Stir to combine and cook for 1 minute. Add cream cheese and 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Stir until melted and completely combined with butter and spices, add a tablespoon of milk if needed. Whisk in hot sauce and milk and simmer for 5 – 8 minutes. Add salt to taste. Combine chicken and sauce. Lay out a tortilla; fill with about 1/4 cup chicken and 2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese. Tightly roll up taquito and place on a greased baking sheet; repeat until chicken is gone. Spray taquitos with oil on all sides. Bake for 15 – 18 minutes; rotate them every 5 minutes, until golden brown.
