Pepper Jack Taquitos

Pepper Jack Taquitos are so simple to make! There is very little prep, cooking, or even cleaning! Let’s get to it!

First, we like to use a rotisserie chicken for this recipe. It calls for 3 cups, however, we usually use all the meat from the chicken for this dish. You will want to go ahead and shred your chicken.

Next melt your cream cheese in a bowl. Add in onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, lime juice, chilies, pepper jack cheese, and chicken. It will have a similar consistency to that of chicken salad.

Add approximately two tablespoons of the mixture to the center of a fajita size tortilla. I prefer to fold rather than roll them just to keep them from being so messy with my toddler. I fold two sides of the tortilla to meet in the middle, and repeat again with the remaining to sides. It should look something like this:

Lastly, place them on a cookie sheet and cook at 350 degrees for 5 minutes, flip, and bake for another 3 minutes. That is it! I like to serve this with taco sauce and sour cream, as well as Mexican rice.
