Easy Baked Wonton Chicken Taquitos

Baked Wonton Chicken Taquitos are so easy to prepare, you’ll be amazed.

They make a great addition to your next football viewing party as a great appetizer, as part of a Cinco de Mayo Celebration.

They’re also great as an appetizer for your next Mexican Night at home.

Shredded chicken is super versatile for weeknight dinners.

I almost always keep small, 1 – 2 cup, portions of my favorite Shredded Mexican Crockpot Chicken in the freezer.

I love the flavor that this chicken adds to really simple at home Mexican fare, like these Easy Baked Wonton Chicken Taquitos.

You’ll combine cream cheese, Mexican blend cheese, and Salsa Verde with shredded chicken.

If you prefer a different type of cheese, try  Monterrey Jack, Pepper Jack or even just regular cheddar.

Any favorite store-bought brand of salsa verde will work.

But, if you prefer homemade, try making a batch of this Easy Roasted Salsa Verde – it is worth the extra time!

To mix up the flavors in these tasty Easy Baked Wonton Chicken Taquitos, try a regular red tomato based salsa in place of the recommended Salsa Verde.

If you prefer pork to chicken, I like this Slow Cooker Southwestern Pulled Pork.

Once you have the chicken taken care of, all you have to do is combine a few ingredients (cream cheese, Mexican cheese and Salsa Verde) with the chicken.

Then roll the creamy, cheesy chicken mixture into Wonton rolls. Then, brush with oil and bake.

If make ahead appetizers are your thing, I recommend making the filling ahead of time but holding off on assembling or baking until you’re ready to serve.

Enjoy these simple Taquitos straight out of the oven for best results.

Once cooked to safe handling temperature, you’ll have a baking sheet full of crispy-on-the-outside, hot-and-cheesy on the inside chicken bites.

Easy Baked Wonton Chicken Taquitos are perfect as an appetizer (or serve them up for dinner) with a side of 5 Minute Basic Guacamole and Easy Restaurant Style Salsa for dipping.
