Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Chicken Taquitos expire?
Chicken Taquitos that are store bought and completely unopened should last until the printed date on the package, this is typically about two weeks. Once the package has been opened, it's best to consume them within 3-4 days. If they're homemade and fresh, try to eat them within the same day, or up to 3 days if stored in the refrigerator. Frozen Taquitos, either store-bought or homemade, will last up to 3 months in the freezer.
How do you tell if Chicken Taquitos is bad?
If the Taquitos have gone bad, they might get a sour smell or may develop a slimy or tacky texture. Mold could also start to appear. If the Taquitos are frozen, check for freezer burn which will look like dry, frosty patches on the surface.
Tips for storing Chicken Taquitos to extend shelf life
• Always store the Taquitos in the refrigerator immediately after buying or making them. The shorter the time they spend at room temperature, the longer they will last. • For extra protection, you can wrap the Taquitos in foil or plastic wrap before putting them in the refrigerator or freezer. This can protect against freezer burn and keep them fresh for longer. • If you're planning to freeze your Taquitos, store them in a freezer bag or airtight container to decrease the risk of freezer burn. • Make sure to defrost frozen Taquitos in the fridge, not at room temperature, to maintain their safety and quality.
