Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos- A flavorful dinner that kids and adults love! Perfect for dinner or an appetizer.
Of all the things I’ve ever cooked for others these are in the top 5 of people’s favorites. I always get a lot of compliments for these. The best part is they are baked! Not fried. And they are so much better than a fried greasy taquito.
I first discovered these a few months ago when I wanted to make freezer snacks for my husband and I to grab whenever. I went to the grocery store for ideas of what to make and freeze. Taquitos was one of the things I wanted to make. Have you ever had the frozen taquitos they sell? It’s nothing like these, those are cheap and not so good for you. These are so tasty and so much better for you.
I love the crunchiness of the tortilla and the amazing flavor of the chicken mixture. It is so incredibly yummy! You can serve these as dinner or an appetizer. Also, I love making Creamy Lime Cilantro Dressing to dip these in. It’s quick to make and so yummy! (Note: I usually make it with sour cream instead of mayo.)
Also, another plus is you can make the filling ahead of time for a quick dinner or you can freeze them and then bake them up.
Enjoy! Freezer instructions: Prepare taquitos as instructed but instead of baking freeze them. Keep them stored in a zip-lock. Once ready to bake, bake at 425 F for 20-25 minutes.
