    We used a fajita chicken I had in the freezer... turned out very well! Trying it again tonight with some leftover chicken breast... we shall see if it’s as good.

    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!

    Loved it! Healthier version of my favorite taco shop meal.

    We didn’t have to bake them for quite as long as what’s noted, but that’s pretty much the only adjustment we made. This recipe is great as is,; the taquitos come out flavorful and delightfully crispy. It’s a great staple to have in your back pocket - leftovers can be frozen and reheated easily, and they keep well. Kids love it!
    It turned out delish... I did tweak it bit .... added cream cheese , a little shredded cheese , a little chopped up chipotle's in adobe's sause to spice it up into the shredded chicken mixture ... Yummy

    I made mine by making crockpot chicken with taco seasoning and then followed the recipe accordingly to bake. Super Easy, Crunchy and Delicious!
