Fresh or Frozen Chicken Taquitos

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!

Have you Tried my Tomatillo Salsa Recipe? You NEED to! It’s amazing especially on Sweet Corn Cakes. What I love is I can whip up this salsa recipe in minutes and it’s ready to go.

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.

Chopped Green Onions

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!
