BBQ Chicken Taquitos; oozing with barbecue chicken and cheese. You won't be able to stop snacking on this new favorite.
This month the Pass the Cook Book Club picked up Jenny's cookbook, the Picky Palate, named after her awesome blog. The club is designed to have us use the books collecting dust in our ever growing collection (any one can join!) and this month, keeping with spring flavors and wanting a burst of bright in the rotation after Guy's big manly meals last month, I chose three recipes that I thought would be a lot of fun. There were the Shrimp Mango Quesadillas, Weeknight Chicken Taquitos, and uber cute sounding Peanut Butter and Jelly Mini Pies. Each of these was family approved but with a slight twist and it was great reading about who wanted to try what as the month went on.
Weeknight Chicken Taquitos
I opted for the taquitos because things have been crazy busy here and I knew sneaking shrimp in was not going to fly, though Erin's suggestion of using chicken instead would have worked perfectly.
To join the club, click for our facebook group here. Remember, you don't need a blog - you just need to want to cook! We pick recipes and post once a month. If you can't one month, no bigs. If you want to try more than one recipe - go for it! We are just in this to have fun.

Man, this is the type of recipe that makes my mouth water just by looking at the picture. I'm *definitely* going to try out that slow-cooker BBQ chicken recipe and make some sort of taco/taquito with it. Looks soooooo good. ^_^

Oh yeah, look at that delicious cheese oozing from those taquitos--absolute deliciousness!
Looks like none of us fried the taquitos. I am drooling all over your bbq version. My husband would think he'd died and gone to Heaven if I served these.
