Need a quick and easy way to spice up your weeknight? These Easy Baked Chicken Taquitos are a fast and family-friendly recipe that’s ready under 30 minutes!
The lazy days of summer become pretty hectic again once everyone’s back to their normal routine in September! Those days, I am all about making dinner as easy as possible! That’s why I love one stop shopping at Walmart! We get what we need for the house and then pick up ingredients for easy weeknight meals. The less prep and ingredients I need to make dinner, the better!
Taco night has become an almost weekly tradition in my house. It’s a quick and easy meal that I love to switch up every now and then. Instead of tacos, sometimes we’ll have enchiladas or fajitas. Still just as easy, but full of bold Mexican flavor. Most recently, I made easy baked chicken taquitos. Now, they’re one of my go-to recipes for hectic days!
It’s nice to have a few go-to recipes on hand that are quick, easy, and delicious! During my last trip to Walmart, I stocked up on cans of Swanson® Premium Chicken, a couple jars of Pace®, and V8 Splash® to have on hand for taco nights.
Swanson® Premium Chicken is already cooked making my chicken taquitos that much easier to prepare! All you need to do is heat it up along with taco seasonings and roll up flour tortillas with cheese and bake! They’re a perfect weeknight meal when served with the genuine Southwest flavor of Pace®!
We drink a lot of V8 Splash® in our house, too. The Tropical Blend is a better for you family refreshment that’s packed with vitamins like A & C! Moms, you can feel good about giving your kids V8 Splash®. It’s made with real fruits and veggies! It’s a family-friendly beverage choice for taco night!
