Chicken taquitos with ranch

However, as delicious and unique as they may be, chicken taquitos are simply fried tortilla shells that are filled with chicken and cheese. All you will need to make chicken taquitos is shredded chicken, cheddar cheese, monterey jack cheese and corn tortillas, along with your favorite spices, and, of course, be sure to serve with ranch or dipping cheese sauce. You can find a full recipe here.
Super nachos are easy to prepare and takes less than an hour. To make super nachos, you will need corn tortilla chips (preferably different colors), pico de gallo salsa, beef and beans topping, cheese sauce and your favorite additional toppings such as sour cream, black olives, pimento and avocado.

Pigs in a blanket
Pigs in a blanket is a very simple dish that is perfect for game days, and you can make the dish a little fancier as well with this recipe.
