Baked Chicken Ranch Taquitos

Here’s a fun, easy, kid-friendly dinner that’s all rolled up into a tiny little crunchy pocket of yumminess. They are golden brown and crunchy on the outside and creamy and delicious on the inside. The best part of these is you can make the filling ahead of time and use up any of that leftover chicken you have sitting around in your fridge.

I love a little heat on these too, so I drizzled some Sriracha sauce on mine, but the girls liked dipping them into ranch dressing. However you eat it, you’ll love it!

Let me know what you like dipping yours in in the comments below!
