I have to be honest . . . there are a lot of recipe fails at my house. Most of them happen when I try to invent my own recipe . . . my poor husband dreads those "experimental meals". But every once in a while, something wonderful comes of it and these little taquitos fall into that wonderful category!
They are quick and easy to throw together- you can prepare the filling early in the day and even roll the taquitos, keep them in the fridge, and then pop them in the oven when you are rea
Baked Chicken Bacon Ranch Taquitos
Also seen on Six Sisters Stuff
Ingredients8 ounces cream cheese ( softened (I used Neufchatel cheese) )
12 bacon strips ( cooked and crumbled )
4 cups chicken light meat ( cooked, shredded chicken (a rotisserie chicken works great for this!) )
1 ranch dressing mix
2 cups monterey cheese, shredded
3 tablespoons green onion ( 3-4 Tablespoons green onion, chopped )
20 flour tortilla ( 6-inch )
1 to taste salt
DirectionsPreheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cover a large baking sheet (I use a cookie sheet) with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.
Mix together cream cheese, chicken, bacon, cheese, and green onions. Add in about 1/2 of the dry Ranch dressing mix and taste- add more if you want more of a Ranch taste (I ended up using only 1/2 of the packet). Mix well. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture into a flour tortilla and roll it up.
Place taquito seam-side down on the baking sheet. Repeat about 20 times (I had to use two baking sheets because all of my taquitos would not fit on one). Once finished, spray the tops of the taquitos with non-stick cooking spray (or you could lightly brush some olive oil on them) and sprinkle with salt (I like to use sea salt).
Place pan in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes (or until edges and tops are golden). Let cool for a couple of minutes. Serve with Ranch dressing or Blue Cheese Dressing for dipping (my husband also likes to dip them in "Salsa Ranch"- just mix equal parts salsa and Ranch dressing together).
