    Shana J's Note:

    This is one of my kids favorite recipes. We all love taquitos and since we can change use our choice of cheese and fillings they think they're better than the frozen taquitos in the store.

      Just got done making/sampling these. I always try and make things healthier, and rarely fry things. So, I started out warming the tortillas in the microwave between paper towels (2 at a time). I filled them, used toothpicks, and put them in the oven to bake. I made 4 like this. They were fair. Not very crispy at all, kind of chewy. So, I decided to try and warm the tortillas in oil on the stove, and then bake them. This made them a bit crispier, but still not too great. So, I relented, and got the deep fryer down. They are so much better this way. I did still warm the tortillas in the microwave, and it made a mess of my oil and made some of the filling on the ends black (I think it may have been the cheese, still tasted fine), but they are so much better fried. I figured I do almost everything else baked, so why not!

      I love chicken taquitos! I usually leave the cheese and chilies out and serve it as an optional topping..Instead I make a salsa topping. Also I heat up the tortillas in the micro, then fry them, and if a make a big batch I freeze the unfried ones and when I take them out I fry them..!!
