A reader asked what would be good with these.. How about trying homemade Guacamole Salad!  This has become a favorite in our household.  Our 5 year old son can not get enough of it!  Find out how to make Guacamole Salad HERE.

    These are absolutely amazing!!!!! My super picky husband is a huge fan. I paired it with oven baked parm. fries. DELICIOUS!

    You cooked them too long. You really need to watch while making these, if you start to see the filling coming out, take them out of the oven. I know from personal experience. 🙂

    Making these right now. Mine look like burittos…lol

    Use corn tortillas. Much better to wrap with than flour

  • to be serious…..fast food for dinner?

  • Trying to make these in the crockpot today, I absolutely hate shredding chicken so I’m hoping it will be nice and tender and just shred itself when stirred…If it works ill let everyone know!

    To get the tortillas to stick to the side, use a flour-water paste. Right before you get to the end, rub some on. It seals them and keeps them from coming undone during cooking (it’s how Taco Time Does it!!!)

    These taquitos were to die for! I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and they still were sinful! thanks For the recipe!
