This taquito recipe is very similar to my chicken rolls, only with a change of seasoning. I loved how quickly this recipe came together, which made it perfect for a weekend dinner. The seasonings use give them just enough of a smokey/spicy flavor without losing the creamy taste from the cream cheese and sour cream.
Perhaps I'm not skilled enough in the baking of taquitos, but a lot of mine split open during baking. I'm not quite sure what to do about that. Perhaps my tortillas were too old and were more prone to splitting? Or I cooked them to long? Either way, quite a few spilled out onto the baking sheet. Still yummy, just not as pretty. :)
This would also be a perfect addition to a Cinco De Mayo party, or to throw in your child's lunch box! maybe even an after school quick snack.
