These have been circulating food blogs for a while, so I finally gave them a try and was super excited with the result! I modified the different versions I saw online to come up with a quick and easy version that I liked. They are so easy and really tasty!
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup salsa
1 tsp. chili powder
½ tsp. cumin
½ tsp. onion powder
2 cloves garlic, minced (I use the minced garlic from the jar.)
2/3 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese
10 8-inch flour tortillas
Preheat the oven to 425˚ F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, salsa, spices, beans, chicken, and shredded cheese. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the filling mixture down the middle of each tortilla. Roll the tortilla up tightly around the filling. Place seam-side down on a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining tortillas, spacing taquitos evenly on cookie sheet. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
Bake 15-20 minutes, until crisp and lightly browned. Serve with sour cream and salsa, if desired.
