We sure do love baked taquitos at our house.  I have made a couple of different versions here and here.   They are quick and easy and a family favorite.  I recently discovered a quicker short cut.  I buy a rotisserie chicken at the store.  Why was I so late jumping on that band wagon?  Rotisserie chicken is so tender and easy to shred.  It is perfect for making these taquitos and they are in the oven in no time at all!

One of our favorite recipes on the blog are these Honey Lime Enchiladas.  It was one of the first recipes that made it onto the blog and my husband requests them all of the time!  Honey and lime together is such a unique and delicious flavor combination.  And since we loved them so much, I thought it was time to bake them as a taquito!

You guys.  These are the BEST taquitos ever!  The flavor is absolutely incredible.  They are so delicious, creamy and cheesy on the inside.  They made it to the top of the favorite baked taquito combination.  The entire family devoured them including the baby.   They are great by themselves or you can dip them in this amazing cilantro lime sour cream.  Either way, you are going to love them as much as we did!
