Taquito Time

When I saw this recipe, I new it had to be good — cheese, taco shells, chicken, and more cheese? Yes, please.

2-3 oz cream cheese (I used the whipped variety because it is easier to mix — no need to soften!)
1/4C salsa
2T lime juice (use fresh!)
1tsp chili powder
1/2tsp cumin
1/2tsp onion powder
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 green onions, sliced
2-3T cilantro, chopped
2C chicken, cooked and shredded
1C shredded cheese (Mexican or anything that suits your fancy)
10 6inch flour tortillas (or corn, whole wheat, low carb)

This recipe is super super complicated.

Grab a bowl.

Preheat the oven to 425.

Toss together cheese, chicken, cilantro, green onions, garlic, onion powder, cumin, chili powder, cream cheese, lime juice, and salsa — that is everything but the tortillas for those of you who might be confused.

Mix it up.

Plop about 3-4T of mixture onto the edge of a tortilla and roll it up. Put it on a baking sheet lined with foil (for easy cleanup). Plop it — don’t drop or spoon it. This step is crucial…

Bake at 425 for 15-20minutes.

Enjoy with salsa, sour cream, black beans, or whatever else you can dream up. Yum!
