More Recipe Tips

  • Taquitos can be frozen up to 30 days. Place in a sealable freezer bag laying flat. Freeze. After they are fully frozen I like to wrap each one in a paper towel and return them to the freezer bag. When you are ready to eat cook from frozen. Bake for 25 min.
  • My kids love grabbing one for lunch or one for a quick dinner.
  • We make these ahead of time and take them camping too.
  • If you don’t have the money or the time to grab a whole chicken you can substitute canned chicken in its place.
  • Make a double batch! Double the recipe and eat one batch tonight and freeze the rest in a gallon-size freezer bag. This is our favorite freezer meal.
  • Don’t have any bacon on hand, grab some bacon pieces.
  • This recipe is perfect for meal prep day too!
  • If you aren’t a fan of a flour tortilla, feel free to substitute with my fave corn tortilla.
  • Need a lesser amount of taquitos, just half the recipe.
  • I know chicken can be a bit pricey these days, but if you find a great deal, stock up! Use what you need for this recipe and freeze the rest.
