Crispy Taquitos

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

Here's a quick meal that can be kept in the freezer, ready to reheat & serve. The recipe is from the 2004 Healthy Latino Recipes Made with Love. NOTE: I use another one of my posted recipes, #368785, Pico De Gallo when making this!

Made this tonight, and it was pretty good. I kind of just used this recipe as a staple and made my own chicken filling. I took 4 chicken breast put them in oven coated with chili powder, lime juice, and salt...Baked it for about 20 mins then shredded it with a fork. I added a can of green chilis and a little enchilada sauce then created finished it in the way you said to cook them. Came out goo.
