Baked Chipotle Chicken Taquitos

2 Tablespoons butter

3 cups cooked and shredded chicken (I use a store bought rotisserie chicken)

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

3/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle powder

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1- 4oz can diced chilies

24 small flour tortillas or 12 regular

2 cups shredded soft Mexican cheese

1 cup sour cream

Juice of 3 limes and 1 Tablespoon of lime zest

Preheat the oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.

Combine chicken, paprika, salt, garlic powder, cumin, chipotle, chili powder, and can of diced chilies.

Melt butter in a skillet. Add in the chicken mixture to the skillet and cook until warmed through.

Warm up a a few flour tortillas at a time by heating them in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Place 2 tablespoons of chicken mixture in the middle of each tortilla and top with shredded cheese. Tightly roll each tortilla and place seam side down on foil-lined baking sheet.

Fill all the tortillas shells and roll them the same way. Place them all on the baking sheet. Coat the tops with cooking spray and sprinkle with kosher salt.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

While they are baking, mix the sour cream with the lime juice and zest. Set aside.

Serve the baked taquitos with a side of lime sour cream.
