Creamy Lime Chicken Taquitos

This taquito recipe is very similar to my chicken rolls, only with a change of seasoning.  I loved how quickly this recipe came together, which made it perfect for a weekend dinner.  The seasonings use give them just enough of a smokey/spicy flavor without losing the creamy taste from the cream cheese and sour cream. 

Perhaps I'm not skilled enough in the baking of taquitos, but a lot of mine split open during baking.  I'm not quite sure what to do about that.  Perhaps my tortillas were too old and were more prone to splitting?  Or I cooked them to long?  Either way, quite a few spilled out onto the baking sheet.  Still yummy, just not as pretty.  :)

This would also be a perfect addition to a Cinco De Mayo party, or to throw in your child's lunch box!  maybe even an after school quick snack.

Posted at:
  • 1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded/diced
  • 4oz cream cheese, softened
  • 6 oz shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • spices to taste: cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper (use as much or little to suit your family's spice tolerance)
  • approx 12 six-inch tortillas (corn or flour)
Combine everything but the tortillas in a bowl and mix well.  Soften 3 tortillas at a time for approx 20 seconds in the microwave.  Spoon about 2Tbsp of the chicken mixture onto the tortillas and roll tightly.  Secure with toothpick(s).  Place on a greased baking sheet.  When all your tortillas are rolled, spray them lightly with cooking spray.  Then bake at 425degs for 15 minutes.  OPTIONALLY: you can heat up some oil and fry these babies!


  1. I made these again tonight--still delicious! I think this is a new go-to recipe for me! I didn't have any problems with tortillas splitting, probably because I used flour (what I had on hand) and didn't do the toothpick. I just set them on the plate to bake with the end of the roll down, so they hold themselves closed. (I bake little things like this on enamelware plates--easy clean up!) I do keep putting too much filling in them, because it leaks out the ends a bit, but that's just because I was trying to conserve tortillas, ha. I couldn't tell at all that they were dairy-free...success!

    Did you use corn or flour tortillas?
    They look delicious.
