These have a creamy filling are yummy and surprisingly filling. I prefer the flavor of corn tortillas but my husband likes these using flour tortillas. They freeze well so you can bake just a few at a time. Paired with an avocado and tomato loaded tossed salad, this makes a great meal.

How to Make Baked Chicken Chile Taquitos

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil sprayed with nonstick spray.
  2. In a bowl, combine neufchatel, green chiles, cumin, salt, garlic, onion (optional), Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses. Blend well. Stir in shredded chicken until well blended.
  3. Wrap tortillas in moist paper towels and microwave for 45-60 seconds until heated. (This helps prevent cracking when rolling them.) Place about 2 T. of filling in tortilla and roll tightly. Place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas. (Space out the taquitos so they are not touching. I use 2 baking sheets so they get crispier.) Spray tops of taquitos lightly with cooking spray.
  4. Bake for about 20 minutes or until crispy. Serve.
