Exploding Chicken Taquitos

So last night for dinner I made Hungry Girl's Exploding Chicken Taquitos. Since the boyfriend is out of town I figured it was a good time to try a new recipe. If it turns out awful I'm the only one that has to know. I'm not a huge cook but am trying to change that. I am always on the lookout for an easy healthy recipe. When I saw the recipes for these I knew I had to try them. Healthy, easy, and Mexican what could be better? For the recipe just go here .

Here is the mix after I refrigerated it

The final product

So I didn't add the ingredients for these to my grocery list. I figured I'm so high tech I could just open the recipe up on the web on my iphone. Well I completely overlooked the part about needing tooth picks. I had to improvise and break off the ends of plastic forks to keep the taquitos from exploding before they were baked.

I love refried beans so having them as a side was a no brainer for me. I used Old El Paso fat free refried beans (1 WW pt). I also had some Tostito Baked Scoops with it (2 WW pts). So with 2 taquitos being 4 WW pts it put me at a total for 7 pts for dinner. They turned out pretty yummy I must say. Next time I might try it with flour tortillas as I like those better than corn. I think the corn ones almost have a sweeter taste to them. These will definently be made again and next time the for me and the boyfriend.

    This sounded good! My boyfriend is so picky so the only "Mexican" type dish I cook is tacos :( I might have to try this on a night he is out of town.

  2. Yeah those look pretty good. I might have to try those out.
