CREAM CHEESE AND CHICKEN TAQUITOS


We have Hispanic food EVERY week. Without fail, we are having tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas or taquitos one day during the week and the kids love them. I’m so grateful for that because I love these recipes too, and they’re usually really easy to make. Today, I wanted to share our favorite taquitos recipe –  Cream Cheese and Chicken taquitos.



They are very similar to the chicken tacos we make all the time, but they have cream cheese, salsa, and baby spinach mixed in with it too. Tacos are usually folded, and these taquitos (aka Flautas) are rolled. Since my husband LOVES cream cheese, I knew he’d love this recipe and it’s become a family favorite since!
