Backed Chicken Taquitos

I’m always on the hunt for dinner options that are fun, easy, and the whole family likes. These crispy chicken taquitos fit the bill. They are perfect served with a simple guacamole and pico de gallo. Baking these gives the crunch I was craving without having to deep fry and grease up my whole kitchen.

My toddler loved smearing guacamole on these and eating them like corn on the cob, for some reason. To each their own.

If you are not familiar with canned green chilis, they are incredibly mild. They mainly add a vinegary kick to the chicken mixture with little heat. I really enjoy their flavor.
