Intro: Cheesy Chicken Taquitos

  • These chicken taquitos are creamy, cheesy, and packed with taco flavoring! They are hearty, filling, and great for a quick dinner or game-day snacking! They can be easily frozen, so they are a great after school snack, or late-night munchie solution! They are super easy, and take less than 20 minutes to prepare. You will never buy the frozen ones, packed with all sorts of terrible things, again! Bring them to the next flavor level and serve them with my Salsa Verde recipe!

You'll need:

  • 3 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 8oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies (14.5oz)
  • 1 tbl cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 24 – 6in flour tortillas
  • Cooking spray

Step 1: Make the Cheesy-chicken Filling

Preheat the oven to 375˚. In a large bowl combine chicken,cream cheese and tomatoes. Add the spices and mix until evenly distributed. Add the shredded cheese and mix until combined.

Step 2: Wrap Them Up!

Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place 2 rounded tablespoons of mixture onto the center of a tortilla. Spread the mixture out into a line across the tortilla, leaving a little space on each end of the tortilla filling-free. Roll up the tortilla tightly and place it onto a baking sheet, flap side down to keep it from unrolling. Repeat with remaining tortillas and mixture.

Step 3: Bake and Devour!

Lightly spray the tops of the taquitos with cooking spray. Bake the taquitos for 10 minutes. Flip the taquitos over and bake an additional 5 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with sour cream and Salsa Verde.

This looks so good, I have to try it. Maybe I'll add some black olives.

Have you tried with corn tortillas? Will try putting in microwave to soften (less than 10 seconds) and then fill and bake.

I have not as they are so crumbly, and you have to really roll them tight (unlike enchiladas). I've thought about making my own fresh ones and seeing if that yields an easier tortilla to work with, but haven't gotten around to it yet. If you try it, yes, warm them up first. That should help a lot with the rolling. Tell me how they come out!
