These taquitos are awesome. They’re on the spicy side because of the chipotle peppers, and they’re also not quite as caloric as the traditional Mexican version because they’re baked instead of fried. Both things make them super tasty. Give them a try and see if you agree!
These spicy chipotle lentil taquitos make the perfect snack, or even a light meal. They're packed with protein and flavor, and are super easy to make.
