Pantry staples and a store-bought rotisserie chicken make quick-work of the prep for these taquitos, perfect for a busy weeknight.
Chicken taquitos are a fun and easy weeknight meal. Pantry staples and a store-bought rotisserie chicken make quick-work of the prep, which is totally appropriate for a busy weeknight. Baking the taquitos makes them more health-conscious and their hand-held nature paired with an easy dip makes this meal kid-friendly.
This recipe makes a large batch of taquitos (2 dozen!), enough for dinner tonight plus some to stash away in the freezer for the future. Mild green chiles bring both moisture and flavor to the taquitos without bringing a lot of heat, making these friendly for everyone, even those wary of spice. The avocado dip is a cool and creamy counterpart to the crisp taquitos. The addition of yogurt brings a creamy tang with less fat than sour cream.
