Baked Cream Cheese Taquitos
These baked cream cheese taquitos originally had shredded chicken in them. You can add it in if you like (1 cup), but I wanted these to be a side with my grilled lime chicken. They turned out amazing!
|4 ounces||cream cheese, softened|
|1/2 cup||shredded Monterey Jack cheese|
|1 clove||garlic, minced (1/2 tsp.)|
|1/4 cup||salsa verde|
|1/4 teaspoon||ground cumin|
|salt and pepper to taste|
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil (spray well if using foil) and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, Monterey-jack cheese, garlic, salsa verde, and ground cumin until well combined. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
Spoon two tablespoons of the cheese mixture into each tortilla. Roll each tortilla tightly and place seam side down on the baking sheet. You can secure the tortillas with toothpicks to hold them together a little better.
Bake for 15-17 minutes, broil for the last minute or two to get them a little more crispy.
