Chicken Taquitos

This recipe also comes from Pinterest. The original website was penniesonaplatter.com. It’s really easy, you can also prep in advance.

  • 5 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1⁄4 cup guacamole salsa (or other green salsa)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2  cloves minced garlic
  • 3  tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions (if desired)
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican flavored cheese
  • small flour tortillas

Preheat your oven to 425 ̊F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, salsa, lime juice, ground cumin, chili powder, onion powder and garlic. Once combined, stir in the cilantro and green onions. Add the chicken and cheese; mix thoroughly. Working with a few tortillas at a time, heat them in the microwave between two paper towels for about 20 – 30 seconds. Spoon 2-3 Tablespoons of the chicken mixture onto the tortilla and roll as tightly as you can. Place the rolled tortilla seam side down on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas until the mixture is gone. Make sure the taquitos are not touching each other. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until crisp and golden.
