A couple weeks ago over on Instagram I shared my excitement over the news that Gap would be launching a new HOME line exclusively with Walmart. It is finally here and it is SO SO GOOD!! As soon as I saw the line was live, I hopped on and ordered some fun home pieces to brighten up our summer table scape, and thought it would be fun to share them here with you along with two of our go to summer recipes your whole family will love!
Before I get to the recipes, I wanted to give you a little back story on my love of Gap. My first real job in high school was actually working at Gap so I have been a loyal customer for years and years. One of my favorite things about Gap is their clean simple aesthetic. You can see it in their baby line, the classic silhouettes you will find in Women’s, and it definitely translates into this home line as well.
I love that the patterns on the dishes and pillows add some fun to a simple look, but are still all so timeless! And those colors, so dreamy!! Like I said, this line is launching only at Walmart, which I love! That means affordable prices and you get the bonus of Walmart’s quick shipping and pickup features you know I love, especially during a busy summer.

Speaking of Summer, let’s talk recipes. Family dinner is something I love to try and do regularly, but the busy go go go mentality of Summer can make it tricky. One of my best girl friends shared this freezer friendly taquito recipe with me last year and my whole family is obsessed. It is so easy to double or triple and make one day, in order to have your freezer stocked and ready for quick summer meals that still taste fresh and delicious! We love pairing it with strawberries and this fool proof dip that I could eat by the spoonful!! Sharing both recipes below! Hope you love and don’t forget to check out the new Gap Home line exclusively at Walmart!
: BAKED CHICKEN TAQUITOS :
– INGREDIENTS –
Tortillas – I use the uncooked ones because they make everything extra yummy! You will need to cook before following the rest of the recipe instructions.
Shredded Chicken – I don’t measure…probably 3-4 breasts. For extra yummy flavor, cook them in the crock pot with 1 cup water, packet of ranch dressing mix, and taco or Chili Lime Seasoning. If you are short on time you could use a Rotisserie Chicken too.
6 oz Cream Cheese, softened (sometimes I just throw in the whole 8 oz brick)
1/2 cup Mild Green Salsa
Juice from 1 Lime
1 teaspoon Cumin
2 teaspoon Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
2 cups grated cheese of your choice
1 can of Black Beans (cooked and drained)
1 can of Corn (cooked and drained)
– INSTRUCTIONS –
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. (if cooking right away)
Mix cream cheese, salsa, lime, chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder until well combined. Add in pre-shredded chicken and grated cheese and mix until just evenly combined.
Take a tortilla (already cooked if you bought the uncooked option) and spread one scoop of chicken mixture down the middle of tortilla. Top with one scoop of cooked/drained black beans and corn. Roll tortilla tightly and place on sprayed cookie sheet. Repeat for remaining chicken mixture.
Once you have all your taquitos filled and rolled you can either freeze for later or bake right away. If you are baking right away, lightly spray the tops of each taquito with Cooking Spray and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake at 425 for 16-18 minutes. If cooking from frozen, you will want to cook for closer to 2o minutes.
: FRUIT DIP :
– INGREDIENTS –
8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
13 oz Marshmallow Fluff
– INSTRUCTIONS –
Mix ingredients until well combined and ENJOY!
