Creamy Lime Baked Taquitos

Pin It




Do ya'll like Mexican fare? It is my favorite kind of food these days, and it's not just because of the delicious margaritas (they sure do help though). I can't seem to get enough of guacamole - I'm addicted. I make it, eat it, crave it...and the cycle starts all over again. Enchiladas, tacos, fajitas etc. are dinner staples around these parts.






These taquitos were a little accidental, to be honest. I intended on making enchiladas, but I ran out of ingredients so at the last minute I made a few changes and called them taquitos instead. It was a delicious accident. They are sweet, tangy and creamy on the inside, and crispy and cheesy on the outside. And unlike normal taquitos, these guys aren't fried. Much healthier. Perfect.


Creamy Lime Baked Taquitos
by: Back For Seconds
  • 3-4 large chicken breasts cooked and shredded
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 Tbs chili powder
  • salt to taste
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 400*
Toss all ingredients minus lime juice into a large skillet. Stir often over med/low heat until the cheese is melted and creamy. Turn off heat and stir in the lime juice.  Spoon mixture evenly into 10-12 soft tortillas and roll them up tightly with the seams down. Sprinkle with cheese and bake for 20 minutes uncovered.

Those sound amazing! Sooo good. I love Mexican food. Seriously, if I could only make one dinner for the rest of my life, it would be some sort of Mexican flavor.

Helllllllla yum! I love Mexican food. Guac could be my blood type; I live and die for avocados! Plus, healthified Mexican fare? Seriously, are you purposely trying to win my heart, because you're succeeding greatly. Yum!!

Mexican is my favorite Stephanie! My boyfriend Kevin and I go out for mexican on our anniversaries. Is that weird? We do it because our first date was out for margaritas and guacamole. :) I might have to make these for him one day!!

I love the baked option to these taquitos! And could eat/drink nothing but guac and margaritas and be happy I think...totally dangerous.

Carole said...

How creative. I must cook more Mexican!

I found you on Stone Gable's On the Menu Monday. I have linked in bacon and scrambled egg rolls. Have a nice week.

Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl said...

YUM! We seriously eat Mexican once a week; it's our absolute favorite! We make a similar baked taquito, but I never thought of adding in honey--sounds fabulous! I'll definitely add this version in on our weekly rotation! Thanks for sharing. =)
