slightly adapted from The Sisters Cafe
1/3 cup (3 ounces) cream cheese
1/4 cup green salsa (salsa verde)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice -do not omit this!
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder-I omitted this
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro- I only used about 1 T.
2 tablespoons diced green onions
2 cups shredded, cooked chicken- I used a rotisserie chicken
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
small corn tortillas, or fajita size flour tortillas-I used flour
Heat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.
Heat cream cheese in the microwave for 20-30 seconds so it's easy to stir. Add green salsa, lime juice,cumin, chili powder, and garlic. Stir and then add green onions and cilantro. Add chicken and cheese and mix.
You can do this step early in day and keep it in the fridge.
Work with a few tortillas at a time and warm in the microwave until they are pliable enough to roll without cracking.
Place 2-3 tablespoons of chicken filling on the lower third of a tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch from the edges. Roll it up as tight as you can and lay on the baking sheet. Lay all of the taquitos on baking sheet,making sure they are not touching. Spray the tops of taquitos with cooking spray and sprinkle lightly with some kosher salt.
Place pan in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until crisp and brown. Watch that you don't burn the ends. Dip them in salsa, guacamole, or sour cream. Enjoy!
