Chicken Taquitos

This recipe will only fill 4 regular sized wraps, so multiply as necessary. These are good frozen and reheated in the microwave for 1 minute.

2 cups CHICKEN, cooked and shredded
1/3 cup CREAM CHEESE, softened
1/4 cup SALSA

1/2 teaspoon CUMIN
1 teaspoon CHILI POWDER
1/2 teaspoon ONION POWDER

3 tablespoons CILANTRO

1. Preheat oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, salsa, and lime juice until blended. Add in spices, chicken, and cheese.
3. Working quickly, microwave tortillas for ~20 seconds until warm and pliable, fill, and roll up. Place rolled taquitos on the baking sheet, spray with cooking spray, and sprinkle with salt.
4. Bake taquitos for ~10 minutes. When completely cool, wrap in a paper towel and freeze in a large bag. To reheat, microwave inside the paper towel for 1 minute.
