Baked Chicken Bacon Ranch Taquitos

 I have to be honest . . . there are a lot of recipe fails at my house. Most of them happen when I try to invent my own recipe . . . my poor husband dreads those “experimental meals”. But every once in a while, something wonderful comes of it and these little taquitos fall into that wonderful category!  They are quick and easy to throw together- you can prepare the filling early in the day and even roll the taquitos, keep them in the fridge, and then pop them in the oven when you are ready to eat dinner. Looking for a yummy freezer meal? You can easily prep these and then freeze them. They make great lunches- just pull out the number you need and bake!

  1. I just made these and they were delicious, I had to make a few changes to use the ingredients I had on hand substituted taco seasoning for the ranch dressing, roasted leftover chicken and used corn and flour tortillas because I did not have enough of either one but they turn out awesome. Thanks for sharing
    • Hi Amy! I am so sorry, but at this time I have no idea how many calories are in each one. However, in about 60 days, we will be launching another site that has all our recipes along with their nutrition info and weight watchers points. So . . . hang on! I promise that info will be coming soon! :)

    I found this recipe after I checked out your new book from the library this last month. These were a HUGE hit in my house. Thank you all ladies for your hard work and sharing it with us all. This will become a mainstay in our house for a long time (probably a family tradition hehe).
  3. I made these tonight and I'm frustrated. I am not a very skilled -at all- chef so I am sure my lack of skills had a lot to do with it. Mixing up the filling ingredients was a nightmare. How is it supposed to look? I had globs and globs of cream cheese and couldn't get them to mix. Maybe change the ingredient list to say a half packet of ranch instead of 1 packet; When I saw mix ingredients I mixed all ingredients. I tried to get as much powder out as I could but they are still sooo salty. User error I know.
    • Sounds like maybe your cream cheese was straight from the fridge? If you set it out in the morning (or at least several hours before you plan to need it....or thaw it in the microwave a bit on the "defrost" function if you're like me and you still forget!) it should be room temp by dinner time. The packet of ranch seasoning might be a personal taste thing. I plan to use a homemade mix, add a little at a time, and taste as I go to make sure it's not too salty for us. I'm planning on making these tonight and will definitely update as to how it goes. Try again, I think you can get it!
