Baked Chicken Taquitos Platter

I've heard a lot of people mention the blog Our Best Bites, so I thought I'd check it out when I was planning our meals for this week. I now understand why so many people talk about it. They have REALLY good stuff on there. Last night I made their Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos. They were sooooo good; I was left thinking about how amazing they were all night long. I also made their guacamole recipe. No Mexican dinner is complete without beans and rice, so I made my favorite spanish rice recipe: Best Spanish Rice from allrecipes.com. It is so easy and so good.

For the refried beans, I just threw some things together to flavor them up a bit. First put a can of beans into a microwave safe bowl and warm them up for one minute. Then mix in some of your left over garlic, onion, cilantro, green salsa, sour cream, and grated pepper jack cheese from making the taquitos. I also added some salsa and cheddar cheese. Combine all ingredients together. Microwave for another minute and stir well. Throw some shredded lettuce on your plate and you have a complete Mexican platter. Delicious.

I'm totally making these for our Friday night dinner. They look amazing. I've been on such a mexican kick lately. And anything with the word "platter" in the title wins my vote!

I made these last week. I forgot to tell you. Thanks, they were delicious! Even Trevor liked them (that's what he's eating in the Mexican food picture on my blog).
