Somebody please remind my kids that someday they will be longing for food like mom used to make.

Baked Taquitos

Here is one of my new meals for when I want something good but fast. 

Baked chicken taquitos

From here.

1/3 cup (3 oz) cream cheese
1/4 cup mild salsa
1 T fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3 T chopped cilantro
2 T sliced green onions
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cup grated pepperjack cheese
about 12 small tortillas

olive oil or cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly coat a baking sheet or dish with cooking spray or brush with oil.

Heat cream cheese in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds so it's soft and easy to stir. Add salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, onion powder and garlic powder and mix well. Add cilantro, green onions, chicken and pepperjack cheese and combine well.

Place 3 Tablespoons of chicken mixture on the lower third of a tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch from the edges. Roll up tightly.

Place seam side down on the baking sheet. Lay all of the taquitos on the baking sheet and make sure they are not touching each other (Not the end of the world if they are, they just get less crisp). Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray or lightly brush with oil.

Place pan in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and the ends start to get golden brown. Makes around 12 taquitos.

Serve with salsa, sour cream, guacamole and a salad.

Big girl ate two with gusto, and tried to convince her cousin the picky eater that they were really good. Score 1. The toddler stood up in her high-chair and would not sit. She ended up running around and coming back for bites every once in a while. She ate it too, just not in the way we had planned from the beginning. Whatever. I pick my parenting battles and this was not one of them.
