Chicken Taquitos

Chicken Taquitos
These are the bomb! I have been making these taquitos for my husband and I since our eldest wild boy was just a baby and they are to die for. The recipe has evolved over the years to our liking.

Hubs prefers less cumin and I prefer what this recipes asks for. So if you know you aren't a fan of cumin, use half the amount.

The recipe is really easy to throw together, too.  Simply mix all your ingredients together until combined and spread over your tortillas. 

I make my own tortillas but you can use store bought ones if you like. If you want to learn how to make your own, I have a recipe for Homemade Flour Tortillas here.

When spreading the chicken and cheese mixture on your tortilla, be sure to leave the last inch without any mixture so it doesn't melt out of the seam and onto your baking sheet because that would be wasteful of the deliciousness!

The recipe makes about 4 Chicken Taquitos but if you used the smaller tortillas from the store you might get a couple extra. If you are making these for company, the recipe doubles well.
