Baked Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I still can't believe it's really May already. The month of  April flew by! So, I have this thing about chicken and cream cheese. I love the combo and love to use it as a filling for tacos. I did however, want to mix things up for Cinco de Mayo and this was the perfect filling for my taquitos. So rich and creamy but without all the guilt!

Baked Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos
Makes 8 Taquitos WW PP=4
Cal 173, Fat 2.7g, Carbs 20.2g, Fiber 5g, Protein 13.8g

2 cups cooked shredded chicken
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 cup salsa
3 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese blend
8 flour tortillas flour tortillas (I used low carb high fiber)
Toppings of your choice (sour cream, salsa, etc)

In a large bowl mix together the chicken and remaining ingredients.
Working with one tortilla at a time add 2 heaping tablespoons of the chicken mixture off center and spread out like a log. Roll up and set seam side down on a lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat until all the tortillas are filled and rolled.
Spray the tops of the taquitos with cooking spray and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Enjoy!
