Some of our great friends are leaving the hustle and bustle of Amarillo and are moving down to Houston at the end of the month. We’re very sad to lose them and they will be missed! It’s even more sad since they are some of the only Aggies we know up here! We had a little going away party for them this past weekend.
We had an hors d’oeurves dinner and had a wide variety of tasty foods that I need recipes for now. A super delcious queso, spicy jalapeño, black bean and corn dip, and some crazy good chocolate chip cookies.
I made chicken taquitos that turned out to be pretty good. These were easy to prepare ahead of time, easy to assemble, they re-heated well and were a popular item on our buffet table.
I used a rotisserie chicken, a “Fiesta” blend of cheese and added a little more lime juice and cilantro than the original recipe. Low fat cream cheese is fine in this recipe. You can change up the filling any way you’d like. There are so many options with taquitos! I made a black bean and corn version that people liked even more than the chicken ones, so I’ll get around to typing that one up in the next couple days. Enjoy! (more…)
