Ingredients

    Taquitos
    (Makes 48 taquitos)
    Ingredients
    3-1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    3 tbsp. garlic powder
    3 tbsp. onion powder
    1 cup clean salsa (use mild if kids will be eating these!)
    2 tbsp. olive oil
    2 tbsp. Nutritional Yeast
    4 packs (12 count) small, clean, corn tortillas

Tips

Note: These freeze well. To eat after freezing, defrost overnight in the fridge and then warm in the oven. You can microwave them, but they get soggy.


Directions

Step 1 – Bake the chicken breasts in the crock pot with half of the onion and garlic powder sprinkled on them, on low for 6-8 hours or low for 4-6 hours

Step 2 – Cut off any unwanted parts and put the cooled chicken breasts into a food processor with the rest of the garlic and onion powders, salsa, & olive oil, and blend until you have a well blended, “crumbly dough” looking mixture.

Step 3 – Warm the tortillas in the microwave, wrapping them in a wet paper towel. Get them nice and “pliable” so they don’t rip while you are rolling them. They will be hot, so don’t burn yourself!

Step 4 – Put about 1 tbsp. of meat on a tortilla, and roll up like you are rolling a carpet.

Step 5 – Place the taquitos in an oiled baking pan and spray the tops with olive oil using an oil mister/sprayer. This will give you the browned crunchiness that everyone loves in a taquito.

Step 6 – Bake at 400 degrees F. until they are golden brown. (About 20 minutes, but the time can vary from oven to oven. So keep an eye on them)

Step 7 – Cool and serve with salsa for dipping!



Serving Size: makes 48, 6" taquitos

  • These are incredible! I made them from the Gracious Pantry website. I keep them in the freezer and they are handy to grab and go. My husband takes them for lunch when I forget to pack him one. Wrap them them frozen in wet paper towel and microwave 1 min. Come out perfect! I need to make some more! - 7/15/12
