It’s like bbq chicken meets jalapeno poppers and they form a beautiful relationship inside a warm tortilla shell.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup sweet bbq sauce (I use maple bbq sauce, but use any kind you like)
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and diced
  • 3 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
  • ¼ cup pickled jalapenos, chopped
  • 12 small tortilla wraps
  • cooking spray

Pre heat the oven to 425 F

Whisk together the bbq sauce and cream cheese. Fold in the rest of the ingredients.

Add a couple of tablespoons of the mixture in a line from one side of the tortilla to another. Fold the tortilla over and roll it up. Repeat with the rest of the mixture/tortillas. Now you can call them taquitos.

Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the taquitos in a single layer. Spray the tops of the taquitos with cooking spray (this is so they don’t toast too quickly).

Bake for 15 minutes.

If baking from frozen, add another 8 minutes or so.


Have some leftover chicken and looking for a way to use it? That’s how I ended up creating this spin on taquitos. I make fajitas a lot, so I wanted something different from the chicken and salsa combo. So I dug around my fridge and this is what I came up with. It’s like bbq chicken meets jalapeno poppers and they form a beautiful relationship inside a warm tortilla shell.

Bonus: These can be frozen! Do all the steps up until spraying and baking, put them in a freezer bag, and then they’re ready for a quick lunch or supper.
