Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos

These are AMAZING! It made about 2 dozen of them. I wish I could've eaten them all. They are SO GOOD!! We will have these often!!

8 oz cream cheese
1/2 c green salsa
1T fresh lime juice (I didn't have any limes- I used lemon juice)
1/2 t cumin
1 t chili powder
1/2 t onion powder
1/4 t granulated garlic
3 T chopped fresh parsley
2 T sliced green onions

3 c shredded cooked taco chicken
2 c grated pepperjack cheese

small flour tortillas
cooking spray

Heat oven to 425.

Heat cream cheese in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds so it's soft and easy to stir. Add remaining ingredients. Stir until combined well.

You can prepare up to this step ahead of time. Just keep the mixture in the fridge.

Heat tortillas for about 20 seconds in the microwave, 5 at a time.

Place 1/8 c of chicken mixture on the lower third of a tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch from the edges.

Then roll it up as tight as you can.

Place seam side down on the baking sheet. Lay all of the taquitos on the baking sheet and make sure they are not touching each other. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray or an oil mister.

Place pan in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and the ends start to get golden brown.

My tips: We dipped them in sour cream and guacamole. Of course you could dip them in salsa, too... I'm sure that would be yummy! I altered this recipe quite a bit. You can see the original recipe on Our Best Bites.
