Creamy Lime Baked Taquitos

Creamy Lime Baked Taquitos #mexicanfood #taquitos #healthy

Do ya’ll like Mexican fare? It is my favorite kind of food these days, and it’s not just because of the delicious margaritas (they sure do help though). I can’t seem to get enough of guacamole – I’m addicted. I make it, eat it, crave it…and the cycle starts all over again. Enchiladas, tacos, fajitas etc. are dinner staples around these parts.

These taquitos were a little accidental, to be honest. I intended on making enchiladas, but I ran out of ingredients so at the last minute I made a few changes and called them taquitos instead. It was a delicious accident. They are sweet, tangy and creamy on the inside, and crispy and cheesy on the outside. And unlike normal taquitos, these guys aren’t fried. Much healthier. Perfect.

    Helllllllla yum! I love Mexican food. Guac could be my blood type; I live and die for avocados! Plus, healthified Mexican fare? Seriously, are you purposely trying to win my heart, because you’re succeeding greatly. Yum!!

  5. Mexican is my favorite Stephanie! My boyfriend Kevin and I go out for mexican on our anniversaries. Is that weird? We do it because our first date was out for margaritas and guacamole. :) I might have to make these for him one day!!

  6. I love the baked option to these taquitos! And could eat/drink nothing but guac and margaritas and be happy I think…totally dangerous.
