Party Snacks are Here!

I planned on posting this recipe yesterday but was busier than planned so it didn't happen. Anyway, this snack is a great use up for the oven braised chicken I made last week (see previous post). It is also a healthier alternative to the fried version of one of my all time favorite snack items -- taquitos.

Anyway, without further adieu... my oven taquito recipe.

Oven Taquitos
6 corn tortillas
Shredded Mexican cheese blend
Stewed chicken (or leftover braised chicken)
Nonstick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 425. Heat tortillas in microwave for 15 seconds (they need to be soft, it makes it easier to roll up). Fill the heated tortilla with cheese and chicken. Roll up rather tightly and place seam side down in a baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Once all of the taquitos have been placed in the baking dish spray the top with nonstick cooking spray.
Bake until golden brown. Serve with salsa and sour cream if you'd like.
