Total Time: 40mins
3ouncescream cheese, softened
1/4cupsalsa (red or green)
3tablespoonschopped cilantro or parsley
2cupsshredded cooked chicken
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, garlic, cilantro, and scallions until well combine and creamy. Add in the cooked chicken and cheese; stir to thoroughly combine.
Working with a few tortillas at a time, heat them in the microwave between two paper towels until they are soft enough to roll (about 10 seconds).
Spoon 3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture onto the lower third of a tortilla. Roll the tortilla tightly.
Place the rolled tortilla seam side down on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas until the mixture is gone, making sure the taquitos are not touching each other.
Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with a little kosher salt (don’t skip the salt!)
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and golden.
Serve with salsa, sour cream, or guacamole.
