These baked taquitos are creamy, bacon-y, and really easy to make.
Ingredients
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened (or whipped)
  • 2½ cups shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese
  • 5 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • ¾ cup salsa
  • 2 tbsps lime juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsps chili powder
  • 6 tbsps chopped/minced cilantro
  • 8 slices of bacon, chopped finely (turkey bacon preferably)
  • small flour tortillas
  • fresh ground Himalayan Pink Sea Salt to taste
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Cook your bacon and let it cool - chop finely or pulse in a food processor (you can save time here by pulsing it with the cilantro)
  2. Preheat your oven to 425˚F.
  3. Spray your baking sheet or casserole dish with cooking spray.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the chicken, cheeses, salsa, lime juice, garlic, seasonings, cilantro, and bacon; mix thoroughly.
  5. Spoon two heaping tablespoons of the chicken bacon mixture onto the tortilla; roll as tightly as you can, and set the tortilla seam side down in the baking sheet or dish.
  6. Repeat with remaining tortillas until the mixture is gone.
  7. Make sure the taquitos are not touching each other.
  8. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until crisp and lightly golden.
  9. Can be served with salsa, sour cream, guacamole, or a ranch dip.
