Creamy Tomatillo Sauce on Chicken Taquitos is an easy and quick meal or even better served as an Appetizer at your next big party.
This Super Simple Recipe couldn’t be easier with frozen Chicken Taquitos and a simple addition to my amazing Tomatillo Salsa recipe. Baked quick and easy for a perfect Appetizer or light meal.
Sometimes a Mom I just can’t do everything made fresh. So I like to use products all ready out there to make my life a little simpler. Frozen Chicken Taquitos are high on my list, especially with the boys I raise!
So it was a no brainer to use Tomatillo Salsa as a base for this Chicken Taquito Recipe with Tomatillo Sauce and Cheese on top.
Fresh is best, right? Quickly chop up some Green Onions, Tomatillos, and Cilantro to throw into a food processor with some diced green chilis and seasonings. It’s really that simple!
Add heavy cream to Tomatillo Salsa for the perfect creamy blended sauce to top your Chicken Taquitos.
Choose your favorite frozen Taquitos for this recipe. They all work wonderfully! The extra Tomatillo Salsa is a perfect garnish for this appetizer too!
