Chicken taquitos are my favorite taquitos and I added a bit of salsa verde for even more flavor. One of the best parts of this recipe is there are only three ingredients.

  • 16 corn or fajita sized flour tortillas. We prefer flour tortillas so that’s what I use
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup salsa verde. I use Herdez brand which is pretty widely available.


  1. Mix the chicken and salsa verde.
  2. Warm the tortillas until pliable.
  3. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of the chicken to a tortilla, roll and secure with a toothpick. Continue until all taquitos are made.
  4. Place on a cookie sheet in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Remove toothpicks and place taquitos in a labeled freezer bag.
  5. When ready to eat cook on a cookie sheet in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden and internal temperature has reached 165 degrees.
  6. Serve with extra salsa, sour cream, and/or guacamole if desired.
