Baked Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos

Baked Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos

Yield 5 Servings (2 taquitos each)

Ingredients

Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos:

  • 3 cups cooked, shredded chicken (Rotisserie chicken is awesome for this!)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 10 soft taco sized flour tortillas
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt, for sprinkling on top

Cilantro Lime Cream:

  • 1 cup light sour cream
  • 1/3 cup green taco sauce, medium heat
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, combine chicken, lime juice, honey, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and kosher salt; mix to coat.
  3. Lay out your tortillas and divide chicken evenly in a line on the center of each tortilla. Top each one with cheese. Roll each tortilla tightly, leaving the ends open, and place them on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Brush the tops with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Bake 5 minutes, flip them over. Bake 5 minutes more, flip them over again. Bake 5 more final minutes and you are done, for 15 minutes baking time total. (Make sure the centers have reached 165 degrees Fahrenheit.)
  6. In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients for the cilantro lime cream and blend until smooth. Dip hot taquitos in the cool dip. Enjoy!
