Easy Chicken Taquitos

May 4, 2013

Taquitos make for the perfect Cinco de Mayo appetizer.  Corn tortillas are filled with chicken that has been seasoned with onions, tomatoes, cumin and more.  These filled tortillas are then fried until golden brown and crisp.  Serve these taquitos with plenty of sour cream, guacamole, and salsa.
