    These were fantastic!! I struggled a little with the tortillas. I did them in small batches and I found that, it was more time consuming but the tortillas stayed moist long enough for me to roll them. I love that these are baked and not fried and my entire family loved them. I will make these again.

    Great! You do need to moisten the tortillas like it says. I am trying to figure out a better way to do that. It was really good!

    Very easy to make and delicious. Have also made with flour tortillas with wonderful results. Do get crispy. Family requests to make again soon.

    Big thumbs up from the hubby! Baked on convection setting so they were really crispy. Also used spicy grilled chicken breasts from Chick-fil-A instead of rotisserie, so it was extra quick and easy!

    Turn out great! Everyone loved them, I would definitely make them again. I would add more spice to to the chicken, or a sauce make it more spicy. But I give it a five star. Easy and delicious

    Excellent! The family loved them—even the picky eaters! I filled mine with retried beans and taco meat the tip to microwave the tortillas was super helpful

    It was amazing! I've never made taquitos before so I didn't know what to expect but I lived them and so did my wife and three little boys.
    Delicious, tasty, spicy and crisp. What more could you ask for dinner on a Saturday

    This recipe was delicious! Although, rolling the corn tortillas to place in the oven was a fail due to the fact that they kept tearing. I had to fry it on the comal but otherwise came out the same! :)

    It turned out really good. I modified it a bit by adding sauteed red pepper and onion. I'm definitely going to make these again.

    Very good and pretty easy. Next time I will use only white corn tortillas as the yellow corn ones were chewy. Used rotisserie chicken and added lots of toppings

    These were great. Amended the reciepe a bit and almost doubled all the spices as well as subbed garlic salt for the garlic powder.

    I used flour tortillas instead of corn due to family's preference. They were delicious! Even the kids enjoyed them!

    I’ve made this recipe a bunch of times now. I love fried food but I hate frying! So scary! So I looked for a baked taquito recipe and found this one. I use it whenever we have leftover meats - chicken, beef, pork - and adapt it to whatever amount there is. My kids love it! We add a can of green chiles, diced garlic, and diced onion to the meat. I tried freezing them once but they ate them so quickly there was almost no point. I made them again today and forgot to salt and season the mixture before I rolled the taquitos so I just brushed the food with a little olive oil (we never have nonstick spray) and mixed a bunch of salt with some smoked paprika and ground cumin and sprinkled on top before baking. Turned out excellently! I got some commercially produced ones before and they gave me the worst upset stomach, so I’m really glad to have found this recipe!
