If I’m making Mexican food, I typically opt to use rotisserie chicken. I love the flavor, and it makes it oh, so easy to cook!

This Taco Tuesday I’m sharing my super simple spin on baked taquitos. Next time I make these I will use flour tortillas over corn… my kids just don’t like the flavor of corn tortilla shells. I baked these in the oven but you can absolutely use an air fryer for these.

Serve this with Mexican street corn, chips and salsa and some homemade guac on the side. On the table in less than 30 minutes and sure to be a family favorite!
