This one was not a winner for us at all. I actually didn't mind it. Its flavor is more like tamales than the taquitos, though. With all of that enchilada sauce, it was WAY too spicy for the boys. I really think that if you used one can of the sauce and used sour cream in place of the second can, it might be a little better. I didn't like it enough to try to tweek it for our preferences, though.

Wow, was running around all day and wanted something quick and I saw this in reviews and decided to try it. The family at first asked what it was and after they tasted it, All I heard was how good it was. I used a box of 20 chicken taquito's, omitted the onions, used red sauce and add more chili powder and mexican cheese. Thank you for a wonderful recipe that wil be used again. highly recommended.
