As a mom, lunch is the hardest meal of the day for me to make. I’m usually busy doing things and hate to stop and take a lot of time to make a meal. For a lot of moms that I know, they have some kids in school and some at home which means they are really make 2 lunches everyday! The solution: A meal that can be packed and also one that can be eaten at home. These taquitos will satisfy all your lunch needs!
Begin by making the filling. Plain Greek yogurt, salsa, chicken, and taco seasoning. The great thing about this is that you can use leftover chicken breast. I used home canned chicken which works great also. All that matters is that your chicken is already cooked because it makes assembling these super fast.
After you have your filling all mixed up, warm your tortillas in between 2 damp paper towels for about 1 minutes. This prevents them from splitting when you roll them up.
Place a small amount of filling inside your tortilla.
Roll it up…….and bake it in the oven at 375 degrees F for 15-17 minutes or until crispy and brown.
Serve them up with sliced avocado, your favorite salsa, diced tomatoes, and whatever else your little heart desires. These can be packed in a lunch and are delicious eaten even cold!

- Place one tortilla flat on a clean dry surface (keep the rest between the paper towels), and spoon about 2 heaping tablespoons filling onto the tortilla.

Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
