For this recipe, I used La Morena Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce. They give the chicken filling a nice smoky flavor, and you can add as many or as little as you’d like depending on how much heat you can handle! I had to make mine mild for my girls and I; Matt would love to have the whole can in there :)

La Morena Chipotle Sauce Taquitos (1 of 12)

I bought them at Vallarta Market downtown, that place is so much fun! My girls love shopping there and my husband loves the fresh Mexican food. He got a burrito + sides for $7. Their produce section is amazing and I’m so excited a new one is coming closer to us on Broadway, right across from the new El Toro! Mmm :) La Morena items can also be found at Food 4 Less.

These taquitos are so easy to make! I like to do the chicken filling ahead of time and refrigerate it until I’m ready to roll the taquitos up and bake them. I put all of the ingredients in my Kitchen-Aid and let it do the work of shredding and mixing it all! La Morena Chipotle Sauce Taquitos (3 of 12)Get your station ready:La Morena Chipotle Sauce Taquitos (4 of 12) Place your chicken filling on top:La Morena Chipotle Sauce Taquitos (5 of 12)Roll it up as tight as you can,La Morena Chipotle Sauce Taquitos (6 of 12)Like so:La Morena Chipotle Sauce Taquitos (7 of 12)And place on a greased, foil-lined sheet.La Morena Chipotle Sauce Taquitos (8 of 12)Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. La Morena Chipotle Sauce Taquitos (9 of 12)Serve with salsa and guacamole (recipe below), or dips of your choice. I made this salsa that is always a favorite! La Morena Chipotle Sauce Taquitos (10 of 12)Enjoy! La Morena Chipotle Sauce Taquitos (12 of 12)
