I’ve long agreed with Seinfeld that half of the reason salsa is “America’s favorite condiment” is because people just love saying the word. (Sssssssalsa!)

But I’m now thinking the same may be true with taquitos. I mean, why make quesadillas, or enchiladas, or tacos, when you could make taquitoooooos! I mean, who even cares what’s in them. They just sound like a party, right?!

Well of course, who am I kidding, I totally care what’s in them. And I happen to be a big fan of this particular taquitos recipe. First of all, they’re baked and not fried (yet still crispy). They’re pretty quick and easy to prepare (always a plus in my book). And they only call for 5 simple and delicious ingredients.

Can you spot them?

Ok, I know, the title gives it away. We have:

  1. Cooked, shredded chicken (hint hint: the exact amount from a rotisserie chicken, or I used leftovers from my favorite Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken recipe)
  2. Shredded cheese (I used Monterrey Jack, but would probably kick it up to PepperJack or Habenero cheese next time)
  3. Refried beans (I’m a big fan of Old El Paso’s fat-free frijoles)
  4. Guacamole (can’t beat this recipe)
  5. Small flour tortillas (for easy rolling, although you could substitute corn tortillas if you’re gluten-free)

Simply line up your filling ingredients inside the tortilla.

Then roll ’em up and bake until crispy. (If you want them to be extra crispy, I recommend misting the tortillas with cooking spray or brushing them with butter before baking.)5-Ingredient Chicken Guacamole Taquitos Recipe |

See? Perfect for a party.

5-Ingredient Chicken Guacamole Taquitos

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 20 taquitos 1x


All you need are 5 ingredients to make these tasty chicken guacamole taquitos.




  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease two large baking sheets generously with cooking spray.
  2. Lay out a tortilla on a flat workspace.  Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of refried beans in a line down the middle of the tortilla.  Then top with 2-3 tablespoons of guacamole, followed by a sprinkle of cheese, topped with a few pieces of chicken.  Roll up the tortilla to form the taquito, then place it on the greased baking sheet, seam-side down.  Repeat with the remaining ingredients until all of your taquitos are prepared.
  3. Mist the tops of the tortillas with baking spray (to make them extra crispy).  Then bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the tortillas are crispy.
  4. Remove and serve immediately.


*The filling will expand as the taquitos bake, so I recommend leaving at least a ½-inch gap between the filling and the edge of the tortilla before baking.

*For extra flavor, feel free to use shredded Pepper Jack cheese or another spicier cheese.

  1. Looks simple yet delicious :) 

  2. Really, you had me at guacamole. I could eat that on ALL THE THINGS.
    But Mexican, 5 ingredients and TAQUITOOOOOOS just sealed the deal. I could go for about 5 of these right now! Pinned!

  3. Taquitos always seem to lurk in the shadows for me, I think because they’re deep fried so I usually ignore them on the menu. Totally down with these being baked and how easy they’d be for dinner. Totally showing these to Smudge, she’s now making us dinner once a week and these would be just about her speed. 

  4. Nice!!  My boys will love this!  Perfect weeknight dinner idea!

  5. The simplicity of these is fantastic! I’m always looking for a quick party food to whip up, and these will definitely be added to my list.

  6. So  delish – these are some of my favorite ingredients – I just love guac and salsa! These are so great for those busy weeknight suppers and weekend lunches!

  7. These look absolutely delicious and I agree…taquitos is just fun to say!

  8. Really? A 5 ingredient taquito that is baked?! I’m sold! I am dying to have these bad boys for lunch. Pinning!

  9. Nothing like a quick and easy meal!

  10. All my boys will eat these up in a skinny minute! Loving’ these Taquitooooooos!!!!

  11. I just started baking taquitos for weeknight din’s but these totally beat all my other recipes! 5 ingredients? I’m so in. That rotisserie in my fridge is begging to be made into these. Pinned!

  12. So, I’m hungry right now, but aside from that, these look absolutely INCREDIBLE. I wish I had some baking in my oven right now. Definitely pinning this for later!

  13. Love quick weeknight meals, especially when Mexican food is involved!!! These look perfect! 

  14. Oh I need to try this one! Simple and delicious! Thanks for sharing! :)

  15. Yummmm these look perfect! I never thought of making my own taquitos, it’s time :)

  16. These look SO bright and inviting! Guacamole is one of my favourite foods… add in refried beans and Oh my Stars! Definitely going to try these out – I am sure they will be a hit with my hubby!

  17. Can’t wait to make these!

    I have to tell you, I went to visit my brother with my dad a few weeks ago and I made your chicken enchiladas and they LOVED them! Both my brother AND my dad asked me for the recipe, which is really saying something.  They are one of my new fave recipes (the regular and the BBQ version), so I’m definitely excited to try these Taquitooooos!

  18. These sound delicious! Can I freeze them and bake them later?

  19. Mexican food is my favorite and anything with 5 ingredients is a must-try in my book.  I’ll be making these taquitos this weekend!

  20. I made a half batch for dinner last night. They are crispy and delicious. 

  21. Siempre hago taquitos dorados de pollo y tortillas de maiz, no acostumbro las de harina, pero me encanto esta opción, gracias por su pagina.

  22. any thoughts on what to add since I cannot have beans?

  23. I followed this recipe to a “T” and burned the bottom black after 10 minutes. So tired of getting excited about recipes and having the food come out burnt.

  24. Made these last night. Nothing to write home about. Won’t be making them again.

  25. Have you made these with corn tortillas? I’ad love to know if it turns out the same. They look delicious. 

  26. This is probably a stupid question, but I’m BRAND NEW to cooking. Does the chicken need to be cooked prior to adding it in, or do I put in the uncooked chicken in and it will cook with the other ingredients?

  27. This is a super easy weeknight dinner idea! I cannot wait to try it!

  28. Thank you! These are delicious- Enjoy your site (and so does my family!)

  29. I make this recipe the other night with my friends (slightly modified it) and we had a blast putting them together! Thanks for the great idea – can’t wait to share my modified recipe!! Pinned :D

  30. Made these last night for dinner. Good as usual. Thanks for sharing.

  31. The name should be small burritos not taquitos. If you are using a flour tortilla and Rolling food in it.

  32. Can you tell me how many calories are in the Chicken Guacamole Taquitos?
