These tasty taquitos are from the YUMMY food blog of Our Best Bites. We had them at a little party not that long ago and they were DELISH, and pretty darn easy to make according to my good friend Julie (who actually made them). There is also a FANTASTIC dressing recipe to dip these in, which, amazingly, is also EXTRA tasty!
Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos
(from Our Best Bites)
1/3 cup (3 ounces) cream cheese
1/4 cup green salsa
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons sliced green onions
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
Small corn or flour tortillas
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Heat the cream cheese for 20-30 seconds in the microwave. Stir in the green salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder. Stir in the cilantro and green onion, followed by the chicken and cheese and combine well.
Work with a few tortillas at a time and heat in the microwave until they are soft enough to roll without cracking, about 20 to 30 seconds. Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of chicken mixture on lower third of the tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch from the edges. Roll up tightly and place seam side down on the prepared pan. Spray the tops lightly with cooking oil or spray and sprinkle some salt over top. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges start to brown.
Try their Creamy Lime Cilantro dressing for dipping!
TIP: Experiment with the cheeses and try cooking your chicken with some different seasonings, or with lime juice. All will be good! (P.S. The salt sprinkled over top is optional!!!!)
