365 Everyday Value Chicken Taquitos Review

365 Everyday Value Chicken Taquitos

Sometimes, we’re in the mood for a good taquito. Thankfully, there are several varieties of taquito that can be found in the freezer aisle, from the budget-friendly El Monterey version to the slightly-more-expensive-and-better-tasting Trader Joe’s version. You can even find frozen taquitos at Whole Foods, such as the 365 Everyday Value Chicken Taquitos.

Today, we’re going to try some of the 365 Everyday Value frozen taquitos to see how they are.

The 365 Everyday Value Chicken Taquitos can be cooked in either the oven or the microwave, and since a box contains ten taquitos, we thought we’d try both methods. (You can see the full cooking instructions in the package scans at the bottom of this article.) Since it was faster, we started with the microwave.

As you might expect, these ended up with soggy shells that sort of fall apart when you pick them up. They also tend to split open while they cook, and they’re greasy to the touch.

The oven takes considerably more time (15+ minutes of just cook time), but that’s how you’ll end up with crispy shells. They’re still a touch greasy, but they definitely come out crispier and drier. The oven is definitely the preferred cooking method.

even so, there’s really not much to these taquitos. While many other taquitos contain cheese or beans, these are simply filled with white-meat chicken. This chicken is pretty uninteresting. It comes in chunks, though it has a shredded quality to it. It’s not super dry, but it’s also not super moist (and it’s drier when cooked in the oven). As for flavor, it’s just sort of alright.

If you look at the picture on the box, you might expect the chicken to be seasoned. After all, the tips of the taquitos have that reddish-brown look of seasoned shredded chicken. Don’t be fooled by the cover: these aren’t seasoned at all. If you want seasoned taquitos, you’ll have to season these yourself — or just try some different taquitos.

A suggested serving size is three taquitos, and that’s definitely a side dish or a snack rather than a meal. Three taquitos contain 240 calories (so 80 calories per taquito) and 160 mg of sodium.

The 365 Everyday Value Chicken Taquitos are about as bland and uninteresting as frozen taquitos get. You can dress these up with cheese, refried beans, sour cream, and whatever else you have on hand, but you probably don’t want to eat these plain.
