I saw this on a diet recipe and thought it looked interesting. I will make this soon but thought i would share it first with all you ww junkies!lol. 3 ww points per taquito and 2 1/2 teaspoons of dip. the cooking times were not included so this is just a guess and does not include the freezing time. UPDATE:1-9-09 We made these last night and they are really good! THey have a nice flavor. next time i might spray them with some cooking spray before cooking to give them a even cook other than that they were great! The sauce was good but i wasnt in love with it. hubby loved the sauce and said it had a nice smokey flavor!

Delicious! Mine did not turn out as nicely as yours in the picture, but they sure tasted great. I threw some chopped onion into the taquitos, and, because I don't own a food processor, I roughly mashed the black bean and chilies by hand and then shredded the chicken. The sauce was a great touch. Thanks for sharing!
