Easy Shredded Chicken Taquitos


  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1-cup shredded cheese (I used extra sharp white cheddar)
  • 1/4 cup salsa of your choice
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves , chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper for taste
  • 12-15 corn tortillas


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Add the ingredients ,except the tortillas, in a mixing bowl and toss to combine. Taste and season, if needed.

Using a small pan, heat a tsp of oil on medium heat. Add one tortilla at a time and cook for 1 minute per side. This will help the corn tortilla roll without cracking.

Lightly oil an oven safe pan. Place a spoonful of filling in a line along each tortilla and roll tightly. Secure with a toothpick if needed. Place seam side down on the oven safe pan.

Lightly brush them with oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the shells are crispy. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper (optional)

Serve warm with a crema, onions, guacamole, sour cream, salsa, hot sauce, etc…
