Chicken Taquitos

MONTHS ago Forrest sent me a link to this recipe and I finally got around to making it last night. I must say it was SUPER yummy and pretty easy to throw together. Hope you enjoy!

1/3 cup (3 oz) cream cheese (I used the 1/3 less fat kind)
1/4 cup enchilada sauce (or green salsa)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (I just squeezed one lime into it and it was fine)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic (I used the minced kind in the jar)
3 tablespoons cilantro
3 tablespoons chopped green onions
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cup grated pepperjack cheese (I used the "taco style" cheese)
10-12 corn tortillas
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray. Heat cream cheese in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds so it's soft and easy to stir. Add green salsa, lime juice, cumin, onion powder, and garlic. Stir to combine and then add cilantro and green onions. Add chicken and cheese and combine well.

Heat tortillas in microwave between damp paper towels for 30 seconds or until they can roll without cracking. Fill each tortilla with chicken mixture and roll as tight as you can. Place on baking sheet seam down so they won't unroll.

Bake 15-20 minutes until ends get brown.

We topped with sour cream, salsa, and more cheese
