Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos

I have seen this recipe floating around on many different cooking sites and friends blogs. We decided to try it the other night and it was to die for we loved it. We got the recipe from Ginas Skinny Recipes which is also the same recipe from Our Best Bites. Definitely worth trying! 

1/3 C (3 oz) cream cheese
1/4 C green salsa
1T fresh lime juice
1/2 t cumin
1 t chili powder
1/2 t onion powder
1/4 t granulated garlic, or garlic powder
3 T chopped cilantro
2 T sliced green onions
2 C shredded cooked chicken
1 C grated pepperjack cheese

small corn tortillas/ Fajita flour tortillas
kosher salt
cooking spray

Heat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.

Heat cream cheese in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds so it’s soft and easy to stir. Add green salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, onion powder and granulated garlic. Stir to combine and then add cilantro and green onions. Add chicken and cheese and combine well.
You can prepare up to this step ahead of time. Just keep the mixture in the fridge. 

Work with a few tortillas at a time and heat in the microwave until they are soft enough to roll without cracking. It helps to place them between damp paper towels. 

Place 2-3 T of chicken mixture on the lower third of a tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch from the edges.
Roll up as tight as you can with the seam side down and sprinkle with kosher salt.

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