Some call em taquitos, some call em rolled tacos - either way, these little cheese and chicken-packed crunch bombs are absolutely delicious! The filling is really easy to make, and these can be frozen if you make a large enough batch! These Chicken & Cheese Taquitos have a little sweet, a little hit, a great seasoning profile, and a lot of crunch.
A lot of folks use flour tortillas for their taquitos recipes because they are easier to work with. My opinion is that if you can get the corn tortillas to work for you, definitely use them. They are much more flavorful and are unbelievably crunchy when fried. You definitely need to go easy on the corn tortillas by not overworking or overloading them, and properly heating them so they’re malleable. Make sure to have a big pack of these, and expect some mess-ups before you get it down.
You could easily make these chicken and cheese taquitos in the oven or an air fryer, but again, deep frying will give you the ultimate crunch and texture. You can use any kind of cheese, but cheddar is always a good go-to. Consider replacing the chicken for beans if you have vegetarians you are serving.
Serve with salsa and sour cream. Enjoy!
