Creamy Chicken Taquitos

I got this recipe from my good friend McKell - who never fails when it comes to recipes. This is amazingly delicious...and easy! It's been awhile since I've shared a good recipe so here's one you should! (we loved this so much that we made it twice in a matter of days...and had to double it the 2nd time so we could eat it the next day too!)

1/3 cup (3 oz) cream cheese
1/4 cup green salsa
1 tsp lime juice
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder or granulated garlic
3 tbs chopped cilantro
2 tbs chopped green onions
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
small corn tortillas
kosher salt

heat oven to 425 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray. Heat cream cheese in microwave for 20-30 seconds until it is softened and easy to stir, add green salsa, lime juice, spices - stir to combine. Then add chopped cilantro and green chilies. Add chicken and cheese and mix well.

Work with 2-3 tortillas at a time, warming them up in the microwave for 20-30 seconds in a damp paper towel. spoon 2-3 tbs of mixture into center of tortilla keeping away from the ends, roll as tight as you can, place the taquitos seam down on the baking sheet making sure they are not touching each other. Once all taquitos are on the pan lightly spray with cooking spray or oil mister and sprinkle a little kosher salt on them.

Bake 15-20 minutes until crisp and ends begin to brown.
