Chicken Taquitos

Chicken Taquitos are our family’s go to weeknight meal! A super creamy filling made easy with rotisserie chicken, cream cheese, cilantro, lime juice, cumin and chili powder. The mixture is all mixed together then rolled up in fresh flour tortillas. Instead of deep frying them, they are baked to golden perfection with a little sprinkling of kosher salt on top.

During the school year I’m always trying to help my 5:00 pm dinner time self out with super easy recipes. Just like this recipe, my Sesame Chicken is a family favorite. If you’re lucky to have pretty good weather for most of the year, this Grilled Lemon Chicken will be loved by everyone. During the colder months, I love to make a quick pot of my Easy Chili. All of these recipes take 30 minutes to cook!

Baked Chicken Taquitos

I typically have a batch of these frozen in my freezer. This is one recipe that most definitely goes into my menu rotation because my entire family loves them.

They are super creamy, cheese with the right amount of spices. Rotisserie chicken is the golden star in this recipe. I will always pick one up when I go to the store because I can use it in so many dishes. Quick and easy is the way weeknight dinners should be!
