Baked Chicken Taquitos

A lot has been happening in our household this summer and I hope to explain in more depth at a later date. With all this craziness during the week, it means I need meal ideas that take only a fraction of my time to make and photograph for the family. This past week we got our fill of Mexican food with a fajita night for our neighbors and then I decided to end it with a Baked Chicken Taquito night.

It’s been years… and I mean years since I’ve made taquitos. They are so easy to make and way better than any store bought kind that are kept frozen until cooked. This past week I received a package from HEB with a box filled with taco themed #PrimoPicks ingredients. In this box were refried charro beans, borracho beans (my favorite), that green sauce (favorite too), tortilla chips, corn tortillas and so much more.

My first thought was to create a taco recipe of course but why not step outside of the box to make these Baked Chicken Taquitos. I was leery on how my toddler would like a rolled up baked and stuffed tortilla. She of course loved it just like the rest of us and was saddened when one fell off her plate to be grabbed by one of our little dogs. Let’s just say that the dog loved the food just as much as we did because we could not pry it from her mouth.  I hope its a hit with your family as well.
