Sometimes we are in the mood for a little Tex-Mex for lunch or dinner. We love typical Southwestern flavors like spicy salsa, pulled chicken, rice & beans, and fresh guacamole. One of our favourite Southwestern foods is chicken and bean taquitos. They are like rolled up tacos that are fried or baked until crispy. I fill ours with simple ingredients and have a whole bunch of yummy fresh dips on the side for garnishes. They are a lot of fun for kids because they can be filled with anything and are the perfect kind of finger food. Make a variety of flavors and serve up a whole platter for dinner tonight!
