Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats: Spicy Chicken Taquitos

Spicy Chicken Taquitos


Nothing puts me in a better mood than Mexican food.  I love it.  Crave it.  Adore it.  I had um-teen corn tortillas sitting in the fridge from a batch of enchiladas the week before that needed to be used up...so taquitos they became.

I've never made these before, so I went to my good friend Google and found a simple recipe.  This is my version.

Spicy Chicken Taquitos
corn tortillas
shredded chicken
4 oz. cream cheese
2 jalapenos
3 oz. cheddar cheese
oil
salsa, for dipping

In a shallow fry pan, heat 2 cups of oil over low heat.  While that is heating, put cream cheese, jalapenos and cheddar cheese in a food processor and puree until smooth.

Take a tortilla, place in oil for just a few seconds (this will make it ply able and less likely to tear).  Place a spoonful of the cheese mixture in center of tortilla, add a few shreds of chicken, roll up and secure with a toothpick.  Place on a baking sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, turning once halfway through.  This will make them crispy without having to fry them.  Serve with a side of your favorite salsa.  Or if you're like my husband, grab a container of sour cream, plop down and devour the whole plate.


Don't you just want to gobble these all up?  Perfect for an appetizer.  Yum.  What is your favorite Mexican dish?

Now - check out my new comments section.  If you are one of those out there who have complained that you can't comment on my posts (you know who you are), then today you'll have to try the new way.  You should now be able to talk freely and comment how you like.  I hope it is much more user friendly???

Enjoy!

  7. Since pizza and ice cream aren't really cuisines (haha), I would have to say Mexican is my favorite too. I adore fish tacos and enchiladas!
