Aurora’s Chicken Taquitos

Serves: 7
Total Calories: 807


30 (6-inch) corn tortillas
3 pounds deli roast chicken, shredded
1/2 cup corn oil
1 (8-ounce) container Mexican crema or sour cream
1 (16-ounce) jar salsa
3 cups lettuce, chopped
1 (16-ounce) package crumbled queso fresco or shredded Monterey Jack cheese


In a large skillet over medium heat, warm tortillas, 3 to 4 at a time, until soft and easy to handle. Flip tortillas after 3 minutes; remove from skillet. Add 2 tablespoons of shredded chicken to half of each tortilla. Roll up tightly; place seam-side down in a large dish. When all taquitos have been rolled, add oil to skillet and heat over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, carefully add taquitos, seam-side down, until skillet is full. Fry for about 5 minutes; turn taquitos over with tongs and fry on other side for 5 minutes, until golden. To eat, pick up a taquito with your fingers and top with crema or sour cream, salsa, lettuce and cheese.

Tip: Set out stacks of colorful bandannas...they make super-size fun napkins when enjoying tacos, fajitas and other messy food!
