Baked Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos

I must say these are a new found love of mine, I will be definitely be making these within the next week or two again. I love how I can actually taste the honey in these. I’ve made some other ones where you couldn’t really tell honey was an ingredient used. These are pretty healthy overall, the dip is something of questioning because of the sour cream. One day I’ll substitute it with greek yogurt and see how it tastes. If anyone tries with yogurt please let me know! I don’t have much to say because I just got home from work and I’m trying to get this in before my little man wakes up so here’s the recipe :)…
