Flour taco shells baked with shredded chicken, cheese, and cream cheese inside, piled into a small, blue casserole dish. There is a small white, bowl of green guacamole placed beside the chicken taquitos and there is a multi-colored floral towel around the taquitos. Everything is sitting on a barn wood backdrop.
