Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

I put these together the other night in about 10 minutes.
They were so good. I used rotisserie chicken, which I keep on hand often. 
It comes in super handy and is so tasty.

I think next time I'll put out a little effort and saute up some finely diced onions and red bell peppers. And since I'm doing that, I'm sure I'll throw in some fresh garlic. I think that added texture and color of the peppers would be great.

If you're not a blue cheese fan, don't worry. I wouldn't leave it out though either. 
I don't think it gives it a strong enough flavor that you would even know it was in there. 
It just gives it another layer of great flavor.
