Cheesy Chicken Taquito Recipe

My favorite things to prepare for my family are easy, economical, wholesome and yummy! This easy chicken taquito recipe meets all of those criteria and is on the way to becoming a family favorite here! I have been serving them with Spanish Rice or a simple green salad. They come together in under 25 minutes for a great snack, appetizer, party food or addition to dinner.

This recipe can be created for $4.08 to break down the price:

1 package of soft flour tortillas was $1.59
1/2 pack of cream cheese was .49
4 ounces of shredded cheese was .50
4 ounces of salsa was .50
1 can of cooked chicken breast chunks was $1

If you take an easy side route of Spanish Style Rice and a can of diced tomatoes and chilis you can have a great dinner for your family for under $7!

This recipe made 8 taquitos. That was adequate for dinner for 4 and leftovers for lunch the next day.
We loved the creamy, cheesy inside with the crispy exterior!
