"This is an easy Tex-Mex dish that I got from a fellow parishioner at church. I doctored it up a bit. My family likes it 'cause it tastes good, but I like it for its simplicity."

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I am trying it using the chicken taquitos, 1 can of green enchilada sauce, a can of cream of chicken soup along with the can of choped green chilis and onions.
  4. Definitely this is super easy to prepare. I used an 18 ounce package of 10 tacquitos.
  5. This was really good when you also add a can of campbell's nacho cheese soup and sour cream.


I am originally from Greenville, Mississippi, so I am very partial to "southern, comfort" foods. I work part-time as a chaplain in a medical center in the city. I like to cook, garden, and read to relax and enjoy life. I also like to cook and "hostess" for friends. My favorite recipes are varied 'cause I'll try anything long or short, lots of ingredients or few, if I've got the time to work without rushing. I don't think preparing food should ever be rushed if you can help it! I also like thinking about and adding a prayer to the dish I'm fixing for those who'll share it with me. I really like Recipezaar.com and I'm glad I found this website. I've gotten some really good recipes from this site!
