Chubby Chicken & Cream Cheese Taquitos

♥ Beginner

OMG, a new family favorite!!!! I made these tonight and they were a huge success. They were super simple, and were quick to make. I had one kid in bed my 6:45pm.... haha!So what if he has ear infections, that had NOTHING to do with his bed time (eye roll). 

If you make these, I know you'll love them too. They made enough to store, and snack on (but they'll be gone by tomorrow night for sure. :)

What you'll need:
* 3cups cooked shredded chicken (I like rotisserie)
6ounces cream cheese, softened
cup sour cream
½cup salsa
1+ ½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1+ ½ cups chopped baby spinach, stems removed
coarse salt and fresh black pepper, to taste
9 - 10(6-inch) flour tortillas

vegetable or canola oil, for frying

How it's done:

1. In a large bowl mix together the chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, salsa, cheddar and spinach. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 2. 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 platter. Repeat until all the tortillas are filled and rolled. 3. Add enough oil to a large skillet to generously cover the bottom. Heat on medium to medium-low heat, cook tortillas in batches, turning to brown each side. Remove to paper towels to drain. Serve with your choice of dunking sauce.
