Creamy Chicken Taquitos

These are amazing! So full of flavor, and they are baked! You can serve them with guacamole, chile con queso, or salsa. Right before you get to the baking part you can even freeze them to have on hand for a quick meal.

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup softened cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup green salsa (Salsa Verde)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
  • 20 small (6 inch) flour tortillas
Directions
  1. Mix seasonings, salsa, and cream cheese, add chicken and cheese.
  2. Heat oven to 425 and soften tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  3. Place two tablespoons of mixture on the bottom third of the tortilla and roll up very tight. Place seam side down on baking sheet, and continue until all your mixture is gone.
  4. At this point you can place the pan in the freezer, and after they are hardened place them in a freezer bag--if you would like to save the taquitos for later. If you are using them tonight spray them with cooking spray and sprinkle them with salt and bake for 15 to 20 minutes!
Yields: 5 to 6 servings
