Baked Green Chile Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos

That title was a mouthful! I wanted to mix things up for Taco Tuesday and I thought why not taquitos? I love them but rarely make them for dinner. This version is made with salsa verde, chopped green chiles, cream cheese, and chicken. I bake them to lighten them up a bit and serve with additional salsa for dipping. They were a hit!

Baked Green Chile Cream Cheese Chicken Taquitos
Makes 10 Taquitos
Cal 161, Carbs 18.8, Fat 4.6, Fiber 2, Protein 12

3 cups cooked and shredded chicken (I used chicken tenderloins)
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup green chile salsa verde
1 can chopped green chiles
1/3 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar
4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
10 taco size flour tortillas

Pre-Heat oven to 350.

Meanwhile in a large bowl combine remaining ingredients (except for tortillas)

To Assemble: Working with one tortilla at a time add 2 heaping tablespoons of the chicken mixture off center and spread out. 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 for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Enjoy!
