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!

Mexican food with a twist

Hello 🙂 I hope you had a great weekend. I know I did! Okay so let me ask you a question, what do you like to eat besides American food? I’ll tell you what mine is Mexican, and my favorite dish is fajitas with chicken. I also like soup. If you are the same as me, then I want to share with you on how you can make chicken fajita soup assistance provided by your crockpot/slow cooker. Here is the recipe:

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajita Soup

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 (10.75 oz) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
one cup salsa
2  C. frozen corn
one (15 oz) can of black beans
1½ cups water
One tsp ground cumin
½ tsp dried cilantro
One cup shredded cheddar cheese

Optional Toppings:
sour cream
diced tomatoes
green onions
cilantro
lettuce
diced avocado
tortilla strips

Directions

I sprayed my slow cooker with non-sticking cooking spray. Added the chicken to the bottom of the slow cooker. In a medium sized mixing dish, stir cream of chicken soup, salsa, corn, black beans, water, cumin, and cilantro. Pour mixture over the chicken. Cook on low for four-six hours. Take the chicken and tear apart with two forks. Place back into the slow cooker and add shredded cheese. Continue cooking until cheese has melted about fifteen minutes. Serve with your favorite toppings.

Thank you so much for reading today’s post. I hope and pray that with my courage to cook with limitations inspires you to try. 🙂
