Baked Chicken Taquitos

Makes about 12 taquitos (3-4 servings)

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup salsa

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 tablespoons chopped cilantro

1-2 green onions, chopped

2 cups shredded cooked chicken

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

10-12 6-inch flour tortillas

Cooking spray

Sour cream, optional

Additional salsa, optional



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


In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients listed before tortillas. Mix thoroughly until well combined.


Warm the tortillas in the microwave to soften, about 20-30 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.


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