My Kids love the store-bought Taquitos, but have you looked at the ingredients?!! They are chock full of preservatives and other mystery ingredients that you need a dictionary to figure out. In line of keeping it simple, I threw together this recipe and it was a big hit. Homemade Taquitos are not difficult to make. You can make them as thin or as fat as you like. Either way you end up with a crunchy hand-held Taquito that is fun to dip in salsa or even refried beans.
- 4 Chicken thighs (or equivalent)
- 24 oz crushed tomatoes
- 8 oz Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 12 Homemade Tortillas
- Homemade Taco seasoning to Taste.
- Cook chicken in skillet over low heat for 20 minutes or until cooked through and tender.
- Use a fork and shred.
- Return chicken to skillet and add tomatoes and taco seasoning to taste (I usually add about 3 Tbsp) and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Add a spoonful of the mixture in a thin line just off of the middle of tortilla.
- Sprinkle with cheese.
- Roll tightly and place on a greased cookie sheet.
- Repeat until all of chicken mixture is used.
- Bake in 400 degree F oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown
