Vegan "Chicken" Taquitos (WFPB)

The Super Bowl is getting closer and closer! Who you think is going to win this year? I would love to hear your opinions, so send me your pick on social media. I know I have my own prediction, but I also am predicting that you will love today’s recipe! Whenever there was a big game growing up, one thing we seemed to always stock up on were frozen taquitos. Of course, the ones I grew up eating were filled with ingredients that were bad for your health. So for this year's Super Bowl party I wanted to try my hand at making healthy WFPB versions of some of our favorite party foods. And I must say, these vegan “chicken” taquitos turned out better than I could have ever expected! Crunchy on the outside, tender in the middle, and just enough spice to keep you coming back for more.

If you go ahead and try this recipe, let me know what you think and share a picture on my Facebook page of how it turned out!
