Confession time: I love gas station taquitos. You know, the ones on the heater-roller that sometimes look like they’ve been sitting out there for hours? But even so, I don’t care. I still love them.

Recreating these taquitos at home was a no-brainer. I ended up with something that was delicious and fresher tasting – made more awesome with the addition of a creamy avocado dip. I think you’re going to love them. No trip to the gas station necessary!

Cheap Chicken Taquitos recipe (a gas station copycat recipe!) Repin to save.

These taquitos are made with corn tortillas, but you can certainly use flour tortillas if that’s what you have on hand. You can even make your own (bonus, they’re just 5 cents each!)

Now it’s your confession time: Do you have any guilty pleasure foods that you shouldn’t like but you do? Please share confess below!
