These were really good and easy to put together. I used Pace Picante sauce and about 1/2 the amount of green onions since my DS's aren't fans. I liked that there was not a ton of filling in the taquitos; my 1yr DS is still getting used to meat textures so a little at a time is perfect. Made for I Recommend Tag.

Yummy! We really enjoyed the flavor and texture of these taquitos. The picante sauce is a wonderful addition to the filling. I served this with some homemade guacamole and sour cream. It was a yummy treat! ~Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef~
