Chicken Taquitos

Chicken taquitos, what could be better for lunch?? 
 I made these for my sweetie pie. 
They were sooooo good. 
I loved them.
He loved them.
They were so easy to make.
I mean ridiculously easy.
So easy even a caveman could do it !!

Look at all that great chicken.
I served them with sour cream and homemade guacamole.

Just look at that guacamole. 
I made it with fresh avocados, tomatoes, onions, garlic, cilantro and a dash of hot sauce.
How yummy is that?

Make these for your sweetie pie.
He/she will love you for it.


2 cups cooked chicken, shredded

1 (10 ounce) can mild enchilada sauce

1 cup your favorite shredded cheese, I used mexican blend

1/2 cup onion, minced

1 (4 ounce) can green chilies, diced

1 teaspoon garlic powder

24 corn tortillas

oil (for deep frying)

sour cream




1 In a large bowl combine chicken, enchilada sauce, cheese, onion, chilies and garlic powder.
Mix well and set aside.

2 Warm tortilla shells in microwave, 1-2  at a time.

3 Place 2-3 tablespoons of chicken mixture onto warm tortilla.
Roll tortillas as tightly as possible and hold closed with a toothpick.

4 Heat additional oil in skillet. Deep fry taquitos until browned,
carefully turning over to brown both sides
(about 1-5 minutes depending on how crisp you want them).
Drain on paper towel and serve with sour cream, salsa, or guacamole.
