Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

Buffalo Chicken Taquitos
We made these tonight. Delicious!!! We will be making them again. They were not terribly greasy. We actually halfed the recipe. It takes a little bit of preparation, but it is well worth it. They are super filling! I ate one and was filled!

4 ounce(s) of Philadelphia cream cheese
