Taquito Saturday?

Taco Tuesday. Taquito Saturday. Eh, it’ll do. Found a simple recipe for chicken taquitos on Pinterest here ! I loveeeeee Mexican food, so don’t be surprised if most of my food posts are of the mexi-tex nature. 😉

WHAT YOU NEED:
-4 oz Cream cheese, softened
-2 Tablespoons sour cream
-1 Tablespoon lime juice
-1 Teaspoon chili powder
-1/2 Teaspoon cumin
-1/2 Cup salsa
-2 Cloves garlic, minced
-4 Green onions, chopped
-3 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
-1 Cup shredded cheese
-2 Cups shredded chicken
-12-14 Flour tortillas (6-8 inch)
-Cooking spray
-Salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Combine cream cheese, sour cream, lime juice, salsa, spices, garlic, cilantro, cheese and chicken. Mix well. ~Lesson learned: Make sure the cream cheese is softened all the way or it will be nearly impossible to mix!~ Put about 2 spoonfuls of mixture on tortilla, near one edge. Roll up tightly and place “seam” down on a greased pan. Repeat until mixture is gone. For me, it was easiest to spread the mixture with my fingers and roll them up tightly. It will get a little messy, but totally worth it! After they are all on the pan, spray with some cooking spray and sprinkle with some salt. Place in oven and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly brown. The last minute or so of cooking, I put some cheese on top and let that melt. Let them cool and enjoy!
