Buffalo Wild Turkey Taquitos

I am a huge buffalo lover. So this recipe always stays in my favorites. This works great as a game day party appetizer or for dinner. If you’re not a turkey hunter, can substitute the wild turkey for pheasant, or even chicken.

This is a great way to use leftover wild turkey. If you don’t have any wild turkey left over- I can’t blame you there. Take a wild turkey breast and cook it in a crock pot with chicken broth on low for about 8 hours. It’ll be nice and tender and ready to use for this recipe while you’re busy during the day.

Making Taquitos isn’t as hard as it may seem. First you will combine shredded wild turkey, paprika, hot sauce, ranch, cream cheese, and bleu cheese in a large bowl. Then you will simply roll them up and wah-lah! Then you’ll bake them until they’re crisp and golden. So delicious and so EASY!
