Cream Cheese and Chicken Taquito

They are very similar to the chicken tacos we make all the time, but they have cream cheese, salsa, and baby spinach mixed in with it too. Tacos are usually folded, and these taquitos (aka Flautas) are rolled. Since my husband LOVES cream cheese, I knew he’d love this recipe and it’s become a family favorite since!

We’ve had these a few times this last month. What I love is I make the cream cheese and chicken mix and freeze the leftovers in ziploc bags so I could make them other nights. They day I’m ready to make them, I just pull them from the freezer and let them thaw completely, which is perfect for those crazy busy days.

Another thing I love about this recipe is that they are great to make as the main dish or even an appetizer. Either way, I know you’ll love these Cream Cheese and Chicken Taquitos because they are DELICIOUS!



INGREDIENTS
  • 3 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 6 ounces ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cups sour cream
  • ½ cups salsa
  • 1½ cups colby jack cheese
  • 1½ cups chopped baby spinach, stems removed
  • 12 - 6 inch corn tortillas
  • vegetable or canola oil, for frying

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Heat ½" oil in a sauce pan on medium heat.
  • In a large bowl mix together the chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, salsa, co-jack and spinach. Add salt and pepper to taste.
