I love a bit of southwest flavor and these baked taquitos really hit the spot!
My whole family loves them so I usually make up a big batch.
They are really easy and better for you than the fried version.

- Place about 2 Tbsp of chicken filling in a line across the middle of the tortilla.
- Roll up as tightly as you can.
- Place taquitos seam side down on a greased baking sheet. It is best if they do not touch each other.
