Check these babies out!

I love taquitos! They are filled with meat and are fried. That is a glorious combination. I found a recipe for Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos. And let me tell ya. They were awesome! I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for awhile now and I am completely satisfied with the results. The were totally worth the wait.

I got this recipe from CinnamonSpiceAndEveryThingNice.com. Feel free to check it out and see what other goodies it has!
Ingredients:
3 cups cooked shredded chicken
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 cup salsa
1 + 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 + 1/2 cups chopped baby spinach, stems removed
coarse salt and fresh black pepper, to taste
9 – 10 (6-inch) flour tortillas
vegetable or canola oil, for frying
I made mine without the spinach because I am not really a spinach fan. In my opinion they turned out just fine without the spinach.
Directions:
  • In a large bowl mix together the chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, salsa, cheddar and spinach. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Working with one tortilla at a time spread 2 heaping tablespoons of the chicken mixture off center and spread out like a log. Roll up and set seam side down on a platter. Repeat until all the tortillas are filled and rolled.
  • Add enough oil to a large skillet to generously cover the bottom. Heat on medium to medium-low heat, cook tortillas in batches, turning to brown each side. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  • Serve with your choice of dunking sauce.
