This chicken and chorizo taquitos recipe is without a doubt one of the most flavorful we have tried. The chorizo adds crunch and flavor to the chicken mix. Pair these with your favorite shot of tequila.
We recently hosted Taco Tuesday and made all kinds of tacos, but these chicken taquitos with chorizo-bean sauce were my all-time favorite! It’s surprising how the crunchy chorizo really kicks up the flavor of the traditional chicken. Add some black bean sauce into the mix, and you’ve got quite the party. These taquitos do have a problem, though, and that’s limiting yourself to only one!
Taquitos vs. Flautas
Taquitos and flautas are very similar dishes... but they're not the same thing. Both are tortillas stuffed with a variety of ingredients and fried to crispy perfection. But the easiest difference between the two is their shape and the type of tortilla used to make them. A flauta, which means "flute," is characteristically long and thin, while a taquito, or "little taco," is more compact. Flautas are also typically made with flour tortillas, while taquitos are made with corn tortillas.
