4 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
12 soft taco, flour tortillas
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated (I used colby jack)
4 ounces Philadelphia cream cheese
1/3 cup Frank's hot sauce
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash or seasoning salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a small sauce pot over medium low heat, melt butter. Add Mrs. Dash, garlic powder and Cajun seasoning. Stir to combine and cook for 1 minute. Add cream cheese and stir until melted and completely combined with butter and spices. Wisk in hot sauce and milk and simmer for 5 – 8 minutes. Add salt to taste. Combine chicken and sauce.
Lay out a tortilla; fill with about ¼ - 1/3 cup chicken and 2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese. Tightly roll up taquito and place on a greased baking sheet; repeat until chicken is gone. Brush taquitos with vegetable oil on all sides. Bake for 15 – 18 minutes; rotate them every 5 minutes, until golden brown.
These were so yummy! The boys gobbled them up and the two that were left got eaten a few hours later as a snack. Very easy to make and tastes great. I used 6 oz of cream cheese because I had that much left. I used canned chicken breast and the flavor was still great. I didn’t turn them every 5 minutes. Just brushed with the veggie oil and then baked. They came out a nice crispy, golden brown. These are definitely going into the dinner rotation.
