Menu Plan Monday ~ April 18th


Review of Last Week's New Recipes:


Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos: These were a huge hit. We made them with the small sized flour tortillas and served them with sour cream and this awesome creamy lime cilantro dressing.

I didn't have any green onions for the taquito filling so I simply left them out. I also used lime juice instead of freshly squeezed.

Tim and I loved these taquitos. The kids also enjoyed their portions with a little extra sour cream to cut the spiciness.

If I were making these for company of to deliver to friends I would make them with half pepperjack cheese and half regular cheddar or maybe even all cheddar to help cut down on the spiciness.


This creamy lime cilantro dressing goes really well with these taquitos and also makes a great compliment to the meal on top of a tossed salad.

I omitted the hot sauce entirely and there was still a little kick from the green salsa. I also used 6 teaspoons of this homemade ranch dressing mix.

Next time I'm going to try to make this dressing with kefir or greek yogurt to get rid of the mayo.
