Creamy Baked Chicken Taquitos

These Creamy Baked Chicken Taquitos packed with shredded chicken, salsa, spices and two types of cheese are sure to become a regular meal at your dinner table. They are quick, delicious and so easy to make.

Did I mention the best part?

They are baked! So not only are they healthier than the traditional fried taquitos,  they still have that crispy crunch that we all love! These also freeze beautifully as well. Prepare them up to baking and the place in the freezer until firm, then wrap in plastic wrap.

When you are ready to eat just place them on a baking sheet and bake..no need to thaw! Serve with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole for dipping! 🙂

Ingredients:

3 oz cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup salsa

juice of 1/2 lime

1 teaspoon chile powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

pinch cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

3 tablespoons chopped scallions

2 cups cooked and shredded chicken

1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

8-12 (6-inch) corn tortillas

How to make Creamy Baked Chicken Taquitos:

Step 1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Step 2. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese with the salsa, lime juice, cumin, chile powder, cayenne, onion powder, garlic, cilantro, scallions, and 1/4 tsp kosher salt.  Fold in the chicken and cheeses.  Taste and season with additional salt and pepper if necessary.

Step 3. Warm tortillas according to package directions until soft and pliable.

Step 4. Spoon 3 tablespoons of chicken filling onto the lower third of each tortilla and roll tightly.  Place seam side-down on the prepared baking sheet.  Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Step 5. Spray the taquitos lightly with cooking spray, sprinkle with kosher salt.  Bake 15-18 minutes, or until the tortillas are crisp and golden-brown.  Serve with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.

Enjoy!
