Recipe Inspiration

I am doing something completely different this week. I am re-making my favorite bloggers recipes into dairy-free versions…..so I can actually eat them! The Latin term “redux” means to revisit or reinvent, so it seemed perfect! I see a photograph on pinterest, or facebook or in the blog post it’s self, and I cannot get the image out of my head!!!

I saw the original recipe over at Sugar Dish Me. OMG!! Heather has some truly drool worthy recipes over there!

Heather’s taquitos contain cheese, so that’s the first thing to go. Her adobo dipping sauce is made with Greek yogurt, so that had to go as well! I can eat Greek yogurt, Alex cannot. I am not a fan of jalapeños, so I opted to use the abobo sauce from the can of chillies. I only had a choice between fajita or burrito sized tortillas, so I used 10 fajita sized instead of 14 small ones.

Chipotle pepper is a smoked jalapeno, so it adds smokey, spicy flavor to this dish!

How to make Baked Peach Chicken Taquitos:

Check for spiciness and add additional adobo sauce if desired. If you really want some heat, puree the coconut cream in a blender with 3 – 4 peppers! Ay, Caramba!

Recipe Notes & Tips:

  • This recipe made eleven taco sized taquitos using approximately 3 tablespoons of filling. Your final count may vary depending on the amount of filling that you use in each taquito.
  • You can use the solid coconut cream off the top of a can of full-fat coconut milk or coconut yogurt for dairy-free, or Greek yogurt for lactose-free dipping sauce. You may need some milk to thin the sauce depending on your own tastes.
  • Fage Greek yogurt is lactose-free, as is any cheese aged over 90 days; such as sharp cheddar. Check the cheese labels in the specialty cheese section at the grocery store.
  • Vegan cheese shreds are also a good option for dairy-free. We prefer Violife over Daiya, but they both work in this recipe.

  1. Heyyyy! So glad you were able to change these around to suit your needs! Thanks so much for all your sweet words! You made me CRAVE these things again– time to buy more peaches! These turned out beautifully 🙂

  2. I love adult finger food! And I love that these aren’t fried like you’d get in restaurants! How genius of you to combine the peach and the chicken!

  3. I love this, Lisa! Peaches are my favorite fruit and well, we eat a lot of chicken lol 🙂 Pinned this! Thanks for sharing at All My Bloggy Friends this week – shared this on FB too!

  4. I am SO upset that I didn’t see this sooner! My husband was at a peach packing plant today and only bought two peaches because he didn’t want them to go bad (which I let happen too often than I will happily admit). If I had seen this first, I would have had him buy more!
    This looks AMAZING and I’m very excited to try it! I was also told to cut-back on the dairy recently, so seeing something delicious and dairy free is a bonus! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!
