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..!!

I love these taquitos! I didn't fry them, though. I baked them because my wife doesn't eat fried foods. They came out great and very tastey! Maybe next time I'll fry them.

These were just OK for us. Hubby didn't like them at all but my oldest son said they were OK. I made the recipe as directed other then I didn't add green chilies. I made these for freezer tag. I made them as directed but then froze some in a freezer bag. My son pulled them and heated them up in the microwave. He said they were OK reheated too.

Very nice recipe. I made them as directed the first time then I modified them. Too much the first time for us. I would suggest that you heat them in the oven as directed on package, then roll. Spray a casserole dish with oil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Make sure you still roll tight and toothpick them. They came out perfect this way. Thanks for sharing!

Not a great recipe at all. I hated them and so did my husband, son, and brother-in-law. They are just said they were gross. I didn't think that they were gross, they just were not good. I am a huge fan of the taquitos from Baja Fresh so maybe it just expected them to taste at least near what they do there but No. I would not suggest this recipe to anyone.

This was really quick and easy. My kids loved them. I was planning on freezing some for snacks but they were all gone. Next time I am going to double the recipe so we do have extra to freeze. thanks for a recipe that my kids will actually look foward to having!

We're not big taquitos, fajitas, type fans but this was great. I had leftover cooked chicken that needed a use...I didn't have enchilda sauce on hand so I used a 8oz bottle of taco sauce with mozarella cheese. I didn't use chili's because they have onion, garlic and chilis in the taco sauce. I sauteed one onion to add more flavor. My daughter (11 yr ) and I whipped these up in no time. Quick easy meal, fairly nutricious with the vegetables and served them with can of corn. Thanks for a great easy meal in a pinch. I am going to freeze these up for my husband and daughter to reheat and eat for lunches.
