Oven Baked Chicken Taquitos

These taquitos are super tasty! I paired them with my crockpot refried beans and they were a BIG hit! My kids cheered and ate the whole pan. I will definitely be making them again. 

Oven Baked Chicken Taquitos

4 cooked chicken breast, shredded
8 oz cream cheese, softened
4-6 green onions, finely chopped
2 TBSP cilantro, finely chopped
3 garlic gloves, minced
1/2 small anaheim pepper, finely chopped
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp kosher salt
1 tsp oregano
30 corn tortillas
Shredded cheese
olive or vegetable oil, for brushing the taquitos before baking

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, add chicken breast, softened cream cheese, green onions, cilantro, garlic, Anaheim pepper, and all seasonings. Mix everything together until combined well.

Next, line a baking sheet with foil.

Heat up your tortillas for about 30 seconds, or until soft and flexible. (I use a tortilla warmer).

Now add about 2 TBSP of chicken filling and spread it in the middle of a tortilla. Sprinkle with a little shredded cheese. 

Tightly wrap the tortilla and place seam side down. Repeat this process until all the chicken filling has been used.

Once all the tortillas are made, spray the tortillas with vegetable or olive oil. I use a Misto Sprayer for this step. You may also brush on the oil as well.

Cook for 25-30 minutes @ 425 degrees.
Serve oven baked chicken taquitos with a your favorite hot sauce, green sauce, sour cream, and/or avocado salad.

If you notice the taquitos cracking or splitting as they cook, spray or brush on more oil as needed.
