Caramel Apple Pie Taquitos like an apple pie rolled up into a cinnamon sugar crust, topped with caramel and slathered with whipped cream.
I love taquitos and well the obsession with rolled tacos was passed down to my kids. I totally blame my dad who every Christmas Eve makes traditional taquitos. My whole family looks forward to this day because we only have them once a year. It is such a treat to look forward to.
I love taquitos so much that I have a few different and healthier versions on my blog that we make every football and holiday season. Slow Coker Buffalo Chicken Taquitos and Slow Cooker Greek Chicken Taquitos, oh I forgot to mention that they are easy slow cooker recipes!
Taquitos a great finger food, pretty easy to prepare and dang delicious.
I saw this idea for Apple Pie Tacos from a Cooking Panda. My daughter Jersey saw it and was like oh, I want those. But I was like that looks a little messy so how can I maybe prevent a massive taco making mess with five kids? And this is what came to mind. When I Googled it to find the video again later I came across a recipe from my friend Holly, Spend with Pennies for Apple Pie Tacos, so if you are looking for more a taco then be sure to check out her recipe.
