What's Cooking Wednesday, February 6th

Happy hump day friends!  It’s time to share yet another recipe.  This one, while not entirely WW friendly, could be adjusted to make it more WW friendly.  However, I was primarily making these for my children for lunch so it wasn’t really necessary to change it up.  This was a big hit with my gang.

Easy Baked Taquitos
3 Cups of Shredded Chicken
4 oz. of Cream Cheese, softened
1.5 Cups of Mexican or Cheddar Cheese
3 Teaspoons of Chili Powder
1 Teaspoon of Cumin
0.5 teaspoon of Salt
16-20 Corn Tortillas

After combining the chicken, cream cheese and cheese, microwave it for between 30 and 60 seconds.  After microwaving, add your seasonings and mix to combine.  Warm your tortillas, I warm mine in the microwave.  Be prepared this is a bit of a messy recipe.  I put approximately 1/3 or less of the chicken mixture on the tortilla and roll it up.  I put it seam down on the baking sheet.  Once they were all done, I put them in a 425 degree oven for around 15 minutes.  These were really good.

I hope you enjoy them as much as my gang did!  I think I am going to try a variation of this in the air fryer and perhaps with beans for a meatless option.  This was definitely easy to grab for quick lunch preparation, but these also freeze well.  Let me know if you take the time to try them!
