Fall is my absolute favorite season!

It's finally hoodie weather, which this Minnesota girl loves! I'm all about cool temps, leaves falling, comfort and game day foods and fresh apple cider.

Today's recipe is perfect for any game day celebration! It's a quick and easy appetizer, and the flavors are just too good.

I love the combo of the chicken and cheddar along with the diced red onion and cilantro! The onion and cilantro bring the taquitos a fresh pop of flavor with the rich barbecue sauce.

These taquitos are baked and lightly brushed with an olive oil and salt combo. If you double or triple the batch, you can easily feed a crowd.

I shared these with some taste testers the day I made them, and they were a hit with everyone!

I served these taquitos with ranch for dipping, but they would also be good with some additional barbecue sauce, seasoned sour cream, or a combo of either sour cream or ranch with barbecue sauce mixed in.

Shredded rotisserie chicken works wonderfully in this recipe, but you can also use leftover shredded pork or beef.

Try any cheese you have on hand such as swiss, pepper jack or mozzarella or fresh basil or parsley instead of the cilantro.

We love serving taquitos the more traditional way also with ground beef, chicken or pork taco meat, onions, cheddar and cilantro. You can serve them with salsa or seasoned sour cream for dipping.

Any way you make them, they'll be a crowd pleaser!
