Homemade Chicken Taquitos

I don’t know about y’all–but I am all about that easy and convenient life! Especially with school in full swing, I am always looking to find a reliable recipe that I can make ahead of time and enjoy for the whole week! This recipe is just that! Growing up, I was obsessed with flautas which are extremely similar to taquitos EXCEPT for the fact that they are made on flour tortillas (which I can no longer eat) Maybe I’ve been feeling nostalgic or maybe I was just craving mexican food…but the idea of making taquitos hit my brain and I went with it! Minus the fried part, these taquitos are just like the ones you’d find in a restaurant…maybe even better, if i do say so myself ;)
