Homemade Chicken Taquitos


My brother and dad love eating taquitos. Whenever they make a trip to the grocery store one of the things they will buy is frozen taquitos, heat them up in the oven and eat them like their nothing lol. No offense to those who loves these things because I confess I enjoy eating them too. 🙂 However, I am going to have to admit though that these Homemade Taquitos are the BOMB.com and beats the frozen ones by 1000 lol.

Cream Cheese and Chicken Taquitos

Ingredients

3 C. chicken, cooked and shredded 

6 oz cream cheese, softened

⅓ C. sour cream

½ C. Salsa

1 ½ C. Colby jack cheese

1 ½ C. chopped baby spinach, stems removed

Salt and pepper, to taste

12 6 inch corn or flour tortillas (I used Mission Foods)

canola oil, for frying

Instructions

Heat ½” of oil in a skillet over medium heat. In a large bowl combine the chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, salsa, Colby jack, and spinach. Add salt and pepper to taste. Once the oil is hot enough (place your hand over the pan, above oil, to feel the heat), add a few tablespoons of chicken/cream cheese mixture to the center of a tortilla and spread it out using a spatula. Roll up and set seam side down in oil using tongs. Cook until golden brown on both sides. Repeat the process until all the tortillas is stuffed, rolled and fried. Set on paper towels to drain. Serve warm and ENJOY!
