Mealtime can be a bit unpredictable, just like life. But that’s doesn’t have to be a bad thing! I may not be a mom but am still a very busy person and often have to just go with the flow and show it who’s boss by serving up an unsuspectingly delicious meal that is a shake up on a classic but is still budget friendly.

Of course being a food blogger means I tend to get a little out of control with the concoctions that I come up with, but sometimes I need a Wingman to hook me up with some extra time during the week.

For this meal, #FarmRichSnacks came to the rescue with pickup lines such as quality ingredients, easy, and feel-good foods. Everyone can appreciate a great potato skin and theirs are made from Idaho potatoes and 100% cheddar cheese.

And if you love wings but hate the bones they also have hand formed chicken bites made with 100% white meat chicken. Those lovely morsels found in Buffalo style at Kroger were the core of what made this recipe so easy to execute.

One of the most popular recipes on my blog is the cream cheese chicken enchiladas and I cannot say I blame you, because they are one of my favorites as well! I even went so far as to make a stuffed squash version to keep up with the trend and became one of my favorite recipes of 2015.

I figured this was a great place to start for a fabulous new weeknight recipe and decided to change things up a bit with the flavors of Buffalo wings.

I baked up the chicken bites until crispy, tossed them with carrots and celery, which was then smothered with a combination of cream cheese, Ranch, buffalo sauce, salsa, enchilada sauce, and blue and cheddar cheese, and rolled up in a tortilla. Basically this recipe involves everything that reminds you of buffalo wings and enchiladas and is executed with ease.

  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 rib of celery, chopped
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced and divided
  • 8 (8-inch) flour or corn tortillas

  2. Turn oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9×13 dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the cream cheese, 1/2 of the enchilada sauce, salsa, contents of the Buffalo sauce packet, and Ranch. Stir in 1/2 cup of each type of cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. In a second bowl toss together the chicken, carrot, celery, salt and pepper, and half of the scallions. Add the chicken mixture to the cheese mixture and combine well.
  5. Spread about half of the remaining enchilada sauce (1/4 of the can) in the bottom of the baking dish.
  6. Spoon the filling into each tortilla, roll the tortilla up, and place in the baking dish with the seam down. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce (1/4 of the can) over the top of the filled tortillas and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

This ) looks awesome but honestly who puts carrots in a buffalo chicken burrito!? You don’t put carrots in chicken buffalo dip so why put it in this recipe? I would leave the carrots out!!

I thought it was fun adding the celery and carrots into it because whenever I order buffalo wings they come with a side of carrots and celery which I dip in a mixture of buffalo sauce and ranch. I figured I’d just throw it all into one! But if you are still not convinced you can absolutely leave them out.

I love the idea of adding celery and carrots to the filling but I would think they would not cook thoroughly. Are they still crunchy?

spiffycookie November 10, 2015 - 2:02 pm

Thanks Leah! Honestly they didn’t cook completely but I kind of liked it that way because it added a little texture to it. If you would prefer them to be softer you can definitely cook them first.

These sound really great. And what I wouldn’t give to have a Kroger’s in my area now. I went to the Farm Rich page, and we have none of the stores on their list. Boo hoo!! I’m guessing I could probably figure out a way to do this on my own. Challenges are always good.

That stinks! I’m sure stores near you carry something similar? Or you could get plain breaded chicken bites and add your own buffalo sauce?
