I don’t know about you but I’m always on the hunt for quick and easy weeknight dinners. Things can get so crazy on weekdays in our house that I try to plan simple meals, otherwise I know I’ll feel burned out at the end of the day and I’ll be about 200% more likely to just order pizza. My family  loves all things Mexican food – tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc., but I never really had a good taquito recipe I could throw into my dinner rotation. These Chicken and Black Bean Taquitos require only 5 ingredients (yay!) and they’re great for dipping in your favorite salsa or sauce. 

These taquitos are quick and simple. Only 5 ingredients and dinner is ready!

We ate these with our favorite red salsa, but they would also be great with Chipotle Lime Crema, Roasted Salsa Verde, or Avocado Lime Sauce. You can make these taquitos either baked or fried. Baked is easier, and, let’s be real, fried is a little tastier. I’ve included directions for both cooking methods in the instructions. Enjoy!
