Christmas Eve is all about the appetizers and finger foods in our family. It’s a fun and easy way for everyone to bring a few little things and no one to be stuck in the kitchen all day. When your family owns the grocery store in town (and lots of them work there too) days like Christmas Eve are busy at the store. No one has time to make a huge formal Christmas Eve dinner. Plus when you have a bunch of different dishes there’s something everyone loves and eats. That’s a nice perk when you have a lot of little kids in the family. I’m planning on making my Honey Teriyaki Meatballs (made in the slow cooker, yes!) , bean dip because we all love it, and hopefully these Leftover Turkey Taquitos (and if I’m careful they all can be gluten free for my father-in-law). Plus some kind of dessert, which I haven’t decided yet (any suggestions?).
If appetizers aren’t your Christmas Eve tradition then plan on making these taquitos sometime over Christmas break. They are a really fun to make and eat and are excellent! Any kids home from school will be super impressed. Plus they only take about 10 minutes to put together plus frying time. Movie night taquitos are sounding really good to me! You can’t beat using meat that’s already cooked too. No turkey on hand? Just about any shredded cooked meat will work- chicken, pork, or lamb.
