- A pound of rinsed and husked tomatillos
- Pair of quartered limes
- About three stemmed serrano chiles
- Four diced radishes
- Four unpeeled cloves of garlic
- Two cups of canola oil
- A medium, halved avocado with its skin and pit removed
- Two cups of shredded rotisserie chicken
- About a handful of fresh cilantro
- Twelve corn tortillas
- A teaspoon of kosher salt
Begin by placing the serranos and tomatillos on one side of a rimmed baking sheet that’s been lined with aluminum foil. Place the garlic on the other side and then fold the foil over to cover it. Place your pan on the top rack of your oven and turn the broiler on high setting, cooking until the serranos and tomatillos start to turn black on top which should take about six minutes or so. Flip them over and repeat the process for the other side. Once ready, remove them from your oven and place them aside to cool off.
Once sufficiently cool, start peeling the garlic. Move the serranos, tomatillos, and garlic over to a blender, also adding in the salt, avocado, and cilantro. Blend the ingredients until everything becomes smooth and place it aside.
Use a skillet or griddle over medium heat to warm up the tortilla until it becomes pliant and soft, it should take about fifteen seconds on each side. Move the tortilla over to warmer or use a clean dish towel to cover, repeating the process for the rest of the tortillas.
Place a pair of tablespoons of the chicken on one of the warmed tortillas, seasoning with pepper and salt should it be necessary. Roll up each tortilla tightly, making sure that the seam side down is facing down.
Use a large cast-iron skillet to pour the oil about a half inch deep. Heat it over medium until it begins to shimmer. Place as many tortillas with the seam side down in the oil as you can while making sure they do not crowd. Cook them until they turn golden brown on the bottom, which should take about a minute or two. Flip them over and repeat the process for the other side. Move your taquitos over to a paper towel-lined plate.
