  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 5 ounces Frank's Red Hot Original Sauce
  • ½ cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup Colby-Jack cheese, shredded
  • cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded (about 3 cups)
  • 5 large flour tortillas


  • In a large mixing bowl, add cream cheese, Frank’s Red Hot Original Sauce, blue cheese, salt, garlic powder, Colby-Jack cheese, and green onions. Using a hand mixer, mix until well blended and no cream cheese chunks remain.
  • Add the shredded chicken to the buffalo mixture and stir well with a large spoon. Coat all chicken with the buffalo mixture.
  • Spread about ¾ cup of the buffalo chicken mixture onto a tortilla. Roll up tightly, trying not to shift the buffalo chicken mixture too much.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and use a sharp knife to cut into slices. Discard the end pieces.
  • Serve immediately.


  • Regular oven-baked chicken that has been shredded also works great for this recipe.
  • Make sure to chop all of your ingredients to be the same size so that the mixture looks uniform.
  • Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don’t end up with any lumps in your mixture.
  • Use a cocktail stick or toothpick to keep each Buffalo chicken tortilla roll up from unrolling.
  • Don’t skip the chilling step as it will be much easier to slice the tortillas once they have chilled for a couple of hours.
