Every Tuesday we have “Taco Tuesday” here at Casa de Douglas. We’ve made many taco-ey dishes in the past, such as Slow Cooker Enchilada Chicken, Knock Your Socks Off Pork Carnitas, Creamy Chicken Enchiladas Verdes with Tomatillo Sauce, Chicken Tortilla Soup, Chili’s Chicken Bacon Ranch Quesadillas, Tex-Mex Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches and more I haven’t written about before, like empanadas, nachos, and tacos.. etc.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • 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)
  • Preheat your oven to 425˚F.
  • Spray your baking sheet or casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix the chicken, cheeses, salsa, lime juice, garlic, seasonings, cilantro, and bacon; mix thoroughly.
  • 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.
  • Repeat with remaining tortillas until the mixture is gone.
  • Make sure the taquitos are not touching each other.
  • Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until crisp and lightly golden.
  • Can be served with salsa, sour cream, guacamole, or a ranch dip.
