Creamy Chicken Taquitos

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. frozen chicken breasts
  • 1 juiced lime
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • *Chicken Mixture*
  • 1/3 C (3 oz) cream cheese
  • 1/4 C green salsa
  • 1T fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 t cumin
  • 1/2 t chili powder
  • 1/4 t granulated garlic, or garlic powder
  • 3 T chopped cilantro
  • 2 T onions
  • 1 C grated pepperjack cheese
  • small corn tortillas (or flour)
  • kosher salt
  • cooking spray

Directions:

1.Put chicken  and 1/4 cup water in crock pot on high for 5 hours, Shred and let cool.
2.Heat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.
3.Heat cream cheese in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds so it’s soft and easy to stir. Add green salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, and granulated garlic. Stir to combine and then add cilantro and green onions. Add chicken and cheese and combine well.

4.Work with a few tortillas at a time and heat in the microwave until they are soft enough to roll without cracking. It helps to place them between damp paper towels. Usually 20-30 seconds will do it. If you find yours are cracking when you roll them or are coming unrolled right away, just try heating them longer and try placing them between damp paper towels.

5. Place 2-3 T of chicken mixture on the lower third of a tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch from the edges and roll up.

6. Place seem of tortilla on pan, spray with pam and sprinkle some salt on top.

7. Cook for 15 min….and enjoy!!!

  18. This is going to be a life saver!  My grandson (10) has fallen in love with these.  I can’t keep buying them and they are so easy and reasonable to make.  It was getting too much!  Then I see this!  Thank you for saving my budget and my pantry!  These satisfy him (which isn’t easy) and I appreciate it!  Happy New Year!

  19. Sounds great! I love taquitos, but they’re usually fried and unhealthy.

  20. We make these taquitos ALL the time and they are amazing! We double the batch and freeze them for easy dinners!
