Raise your hand in the air if you struggle to find easy after school snacks for your kids? I don’t know about your kiddos, but mine come home starving! It’s like they didn’t even eat lunch. It drives me crazy! I decided it was easier to have a prepared snack then to let them go wild in the pantry and fridge.
My kids really like taquitos – how can they not; it’s meat, cheese, and tortilla… baked or fried it’s the perfect snack! So I thought I would experiment with some unique flavors and try something a little outside the box… Hence the birth of Baked Chicken Pesto Taquitos! My kids LOVE them! And I love them because I can whip them up in under 20 minutes! That is a win my friend! I look like the coolest Mom ever and they are a cinch to make!
And for us adults with a more highly trained palette – these Baked Chicken Pesto Taquitos are ahh-mazing and would make a great appetizer for a party! With football season upon us these would be an easy throw together appetizer that is sure to impress!

Let sit for a minute or two before transferring to serving platter - That's it! Now Enjoy
I like using the HORMEL® Premium Chicken Breast – It makes these so much easier to grab a can and throw to together for a quick snack!
This mixture is REALLY good “as is” and would actually make a really good dip as well
So simple! Just add the mixture and roll (this is about how much you want in each taquito)
