Pinterest Challenge - Day 28 - Yummy Baked Taquitos

Day 28 Pinspiration - Click here for a link to my pin

Gotta give credit where credit is due - this pin came from Chef in Training.

My Version - Yummy Baked Taquitos

If I haven't mentioned it before...I LOVE TEX MEX!  Fried taquitos from a mexican food place are one of my favorite appetizers along side the chips and queso, nachos, well just about anything.  And on occasion I will buy those frozen taquitos that you get at the store but they are expensive and not very healthy.  This was a pin that I've been meaning to make for a long time but finally got around to it.

What you'll need (I modified her recipe a little bit):
  • 10 - 6 inch tortilla
  • 1 cooked, shredded chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup pepperjack cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.  Mix all your ingredients together in a bowl...literally that easy!

Put 1-2 Tablespoons of filling inside your tortilla and roll.

Place on a greased cookie sheet with the seam side down.

Spray the top with cooking spray and bake for 15-20 minutes.

I overstuffed some of mine but the hubby ate the filling that escaped on chips with salsa so it didn't go to waste :)  Serve with your favorite sides, I love queso, salsa and sour cream.  

Yummy Friday meal with Margaritas :)

  1. Oh my goodness these look and sound absolutely delicious! I love cream cheese in anything and everything! Did u use corn or flour tortillas?

  2. I happen to have several 6inch tortillas left over from taco night so this recipe would be perfect to try! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Ok so I made your version of the taquitos last night and they were a hit! I used a colby blend instead of pepper jack and served them with queso and salsa. Mmmm! The tortilla was crisp, the filling was yummy!
