Creamy Chicken Taquitos

Recipe courtesy

1/3 c (3 oz) cream cheese

1/4 c green salsa-I used normal red, i didn’t even know you could make green salsa

1 TBSP lime juice (1/2 a lime)

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp granulated garlic

3 TBSP cilantro, chopped

2 TBSP green onions, chopped

2 c shredded chicken

1 c grated pepperjack cheese


kosher salt

cooking spray

Soften cream cheese in microwave for 20-30 seconds. Stir in salsa, lime juice, and spices. Add cilantro and green onions. Add chicken and cheese until well mixed. *This can be made ahead of time and stored in fridge until ready to cook.

Preheat oven to 425. Line cookie sheet with tinfoil lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

Spoon chicken mixture in a line on the bottom edge of tortilla-keeping 1/2 in away from edge so you can tightly roll it up. Line taquitos seams down on cookie sheet. Lightly spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crispy and edges turn golden brown.

Serve with guacamole, salsa and/or sour cream.
