Ingredients

    1/3 cup fat free cream cheese
    1/4 cup green salsa
    1 Tbsp lime juice
    1/2 tsp cumin
    1 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    3 Tbsp chopped cilantro
    2 Tbsp scallions, sliced
    2 cups diced cooked chicken
    1 cup reduced fat pepperjack cheese
    12 small LaTortilla Factory whole wheat tortillas, high fiber

Directions

Heat 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, chili powder, onion powder and garlic. Stir to combine and then add cilantro and scallions. Add chicken and cheese and combine well. You can prepare up to this step ahead of time. Just keep the mixture in the fridge.

Place 2-3 Tablespoons of chicken mixture on the lower third of a tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch from the edges and roll them as tight as you can. Place seam side down on the baking sheet. Lay all of the taquitos on the baking sheet and make sure they are not touching each other.

Place pan in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and the ends start to get golden brown.
