Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos

     Holy cow, these are AMAZING! I found this recipe here at Our Best Bites and thought it sounded really good. I left out a few things and exchanged a few things to make my family happy!

Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos


1/3 cup low-fat cream cheese
1/4 cup mild green salsa
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice 
1/2 tsp. cumin 
1 tsp. garlic powder 
2 cups cooked chicken* 
1 cup grated monterey jack cheese 

*For the cooked chicken, I put 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the crock-pot with 1 cup water and 1 taco seasoning packet. Cook on low for 8 hours, shred and keep warm. 


1. Heat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with foil. 
2. Heat cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds until really soft. Add salsa, lime juice, cumin, and garlic powder. Stir and then add chicken and cheese. Stir until combined. 
3. Heat a few tortillas in the microwave at a time for about 20 seconds. Place 2 Tablespoons of the mixture on the lower third of the tortilla. Roll it up as tight as possible without cracking the tortilla. 
4. Place them on the baking sheet, not touching. 
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Serve with some homemade guacamole.
Abby enjoyed smashing up the avocado!

Gotta have a taste test!

Add some multigrain chips and salsa, a green salad and voila...perfect meal!
