Gluten Free Baked Turkey Taquitos

Taquitos1

I have never baked homemade taquitos before and wanted to give it a try. Baked taquitos are healthier and create less of a mess in your kitchen than when you are frying them.

Serve with sour cream and / or guacamole or even a Sweet & sour cranberry dipping sauce. Leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken is perfect for the filling… or in my case leftover Turkey.

Since my kids and I are intolerant to chicken, I make A LOT of turkeys over the course of a year and whatever you usually make with chicken, I substitute with Turkey, hence Turkey Taquitos. 🙂
