Chicken Taquitos

chicken_taquitos

I’ve heard the word “taquito” before but never knew what it was . . . until Angie, my cousin and friend, introduced me. And I must say that I’m glad we “met.” I will even go a step further and say that I’m in love. A taquito is a rolled tortilla with some sort of filling. In this case, some sort of creamy cheesy heavenly filling. It’s a fast recipe to make and bake. Thank goodness. Because you’re going to want to eat them as soon as possible!

 

1/3 c cream cheese, softened

1/4 c green salsa

1 T fresh lime juice

1/3 c chopped sweet onion

2 c shredded cooked chicken

1 c grated pepperjack cheese

small corn or flour tortillas

2 T butter

kosher salt

 

Heat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with butter. Soften remaining butter to use later. Mix cream cheese, salsa, lime juice, onions, chicken and cheese. Warm tortillas (heat in microwave in between paper towels for 30 seconds). Place 3 tablespoons chicken mixture on lower third of a tortilla, keeping it about ½ inch from the edges. Roll tortilla up tight, folding in edges if desired. Place seam side down on baking sheet. Brush tops with softened butter. Sprinkle kosher salt on top. Bake 13 minutes or until crisp and ends start to brown.
