Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

My boys are huge fans of taquitos, and these Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos are one of our family favorites.

They’re based on these Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas, which are also well-loved at our house. I figured what’s good for an enchilada is good for a taquito, so I made a few adaptations and this recipe was born. Taquitos lend themselves well to dipping, so be sure to serve these with your favorite salsa, or some sour cream or Ranch dressing. Cut into smaller pieces, these also make great appetizers for parties and football watching.

Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos

Preparation 20 min Cook Time 10 min Total Time 30 mins


  • 3 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 12 small (6-inch) flour tortillas


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine chicken, garlic, chili powder, lime juice, honey, cream cheese, Monterrey Jack and cilantro. Mix well.
  3. Spread 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture down the center of a tortilla. Roll up tightly and place seem side down on a lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
  4. Spray the taquitos with non-stick cooking spray (or brush with vegetable oil). Bake for about 10-minutes, or until golden.
  5. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
Who Dished It Up First: This is an original recipe



  1. Holy cow Danelle – it’s like you have taken all my favorites & made a Menu just for Gina here – these are FABULOUS!

  2. Yummy finger food! I’m pretty sure I could eat way too many of these. 🙂

  3. Looks delicious! I love all things Mexican/Tex-Mex!

  4. These taquitos look too good!

  5. For some reason, they lacked flavor fresh out of the oven. However, reheating them the next day in the toaster oven seemed to do wonders. Not our favorite taquito recipe but a good one to file away for a change in flavor.
