Quick & Easy Fiesta Chicken Taquitos

Fiesta Chicken Taquitos

Looking for a quick and easy appetizer for your next social gathering? Try these fiesta chicken taquitos. They are so easy to make and perfect finger foods. They would be perfect for a New Year’s Eve, game day party or a fiesta themed party.

I love using rotisserie chickens for making meals quickly that require shredded pieces of chicken. It’s also great for making chicken and noodles. The chicken is delicious and quick when you grab it already made from the supermarket.

  1. These look and sound so good. I wish I had some cream cheese so I could make them. I have the rest of the ingredients. I’ll just have to wait until I go to the store now.
