Transform leftover chicken thighs into crispy homemade taquitos! Simmered in our savory green enchilada sauce and gently pan-fried to perfection for a tasty treat in just 10 minutes.

  1. Shred chicken and fold in ¼ cup enchilada sauce + ½ cup cheese (save the remaining cheese.) Mix well.
  2. Heat the remaining enchilada sauce in a saucepan over low heat.
  3. Warm up the tortillas on the stovetop or microwave to make them pliable.
  4. Spoon 2 Tbsp of chicken mixture near one edge of the tortilla and tightly roll. Add a few pinches of cheese to the edge of the tortilla at the end – this will help seal it when heated. 
  5. In a large pan, add oil and heat over medium heat until hot. Add taquitos, a few at a time, being sure not to crowd the pan. Rotate quickly, turning every few seconds until crisp on all sides.
  6. Remove from heat and add to a paper towel-lined plate. 
  7. To serve, add to a plate and pour over enchilada sauce or serve as a dipping sauce. Garnish with cilantro.
