Recipe Ingredients for Chicken taquito

3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup salsa
1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. onion powder
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp. chopped cilantro
1 green onions, chopped
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cheddar, pepper jack, etc. would also be good Mexican cheese
10 (24 g) 6-inch flour tortillas (tortilla+medium+(approx+6"+dia))
1 Cooking spray
1 Kosher salt

Recipe Directions for Chicken taquito

  1. Directions:

  2. Preheat the oven to 425˚ F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, salsa, lime juice, spices, cilantro, green onions, chicken and shredded cheese. Mix thoroughly until well combined.

  4. Briefly heat the tortillas in the microwave to make them soft enough to roll easily, about 20-3o seconds. Place a tortilla on a work surface. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the filling mixture down the middle of the tortilla. Roll the tortilla up tightly around the filling. Place seam-side down on a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling, spacing the assembled taquitos evenly on the baking sheet. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt. (You may be tempted to skip the sprinkle of salt, but it really adds a nice touch.)

  5. (To freeze before baking, transfer the baking sheet to the freezer and chill the assembled taquitos 30-60 minutes. Transfer to a freezer-safe container or plastic bag. To bake from the freezer, simply add a few additional minutes to the original baking time, until the filling is warmed through.)

  6. Bake 15-20 minutes, until crisp and golden brown. Serve with sour cream and salsa, if desired.
