Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 tablespoons butter (divided)
  • ½ cup buffalo wing sauce
  • 1 tablespoon homemade ranch seasoning blend
  • ¼ cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 8 ounces Mexican cheese blend (about 2 cups)
  • 8 small taco sized or 4 large (burrito sized) flour tortillas
  • Ranch dressing and additional buffalo wing sauce for dipping optional

Instructions

  • In skillet over medium high heat melt 1 tablespoon of butter
  • Add ground chicken and brown until fully cooked
  • Drain excess grease/liquid if any
  • Add buffalo wing sauce (start with ½ cup and add more to taste if necessary) and ranch seasoning
  • Stir until well combined and heated through
  • Remove from heat and set aside for assembly
  • Take one tortilla and layer on ¼ of each of the cheeses and meat mixture, making sure to split the cheese on both sides of the meat to help the tortillas stay together
  • Using a clean skillet heat it over medium high heat and rub lightly with some of the remaining butter (use a knife or chopstick to protect your fingers)
  • Place assembled tortilla in skillet and cover with another tortilla (or fold in half if using burrito size)
  • Cook for about 1-3 minutes on each side until lightly golden brown
  • Let cool slightly and slice as desired
