Looking to try something warm and packed with flavor? You’re not going to find too many foods that are as tasty as chicken taquitos. This recipe is easy to make within a short amount of time and doesn’t require too many ingredients. Here is what you’ll need:
- Twenty corn tortillas
- Two cups of shredded chicken (rotisserie is highly recommended)
- A cup of shredded cheddar
- Half a teaspoon of ground chili powder
- Two teaspoons of fresh lime juice
- Half a teaspoon of kosher salt
- A ¼ teaspoon of paprika
- Half a teaspoon of ground cumin
- A ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Grab a large baking sheet, spray it with some nonstick cooking spray and place it aside for now. Mix the lime juice, shredded chicken, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and cumin in a medium bowl and stir until the chicken is sufficiently coated in seasoning.
Using a pair of damp paper towels place a pair of tortillas between them and microwave for about twenty to thirty seconds. Repeat the process for the rest of the tortillas using two at a time. Grab a heaping tablespoon of the chicken mixture, place it in the center of the tortilla, and roll it up firmly. Using the baking sheet you put aside earlier, place the taquito seam side down on it. Repeat the process until the filling is entirely gone.
Use the cooking spray on the taquitos before baking them for about fifteen to twenty minutes. Continue to bake until they are golden brown before removing them from the oven.
