Description

These little bean and chicken taquitos are perfect for snacking or pair them with a little bit of rice or some vegetables for a meal. The chicken is seasoned with a mixture of cumin and cayenne for a ton of flavor and a little spice while a salad of beans, avocado, tomato, onion, cilantro, and lime acts as a base full of bold and vibrant flavors. Corn tortillas have a nice earthy flavor that works well with all the flavors of the chicken and the salad. Grilled onions and jalapenos add an extra bit of spice and flavor.
