HOW DO YOU MAKE THESE DELICIOUS BAKED CREAMY CHICKEN TAQUITOS?
Begin by heating your oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it lightly with cooking spray.
In a medium sized bowl heat the cream cheese in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds so it is soft enough to stir.
Then add in the green salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder. Stir until combined.
Then add in the cilantro and green onions.
Stir in chicken and Pepper Jack cheese and combine well.
Place 2-3 tablespoons of chicken mixture on the lower third of each tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch away from the edge.
Roll up tortilla as tight as you can and place seam side down on the baking sheet.
Lay all the filled taquitos on the baking sheet and be sure that they are not touching each other.
Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray. Sprinkle the tops with salt.
Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp and the ends get golden brown.
Dip them in the creamy cilantro dressing. Or if your kids have a favorite dipping sauce, that works great too!

Tips and tricks for Baked Creamy CHicken Taquitos
- These can easily be made earlier in the day. Cover and place in the fridge until ready to bake. The perfect dinner for a busy day.
- You can easily purchase a rotisserie chicken at the store and take all the chicken off. Then you don’t have to deal with cooking chicken breasts. And rotisserie chicken has a delicious seasoned taste to it. It’s one of our favorite short cuts.
- If you love more chicken or cheese in your taquito, then for sure add in more to your liking.
