    Servings: 6 (Makes 24 Taquitos)

    For the taquito filling:
    6 cups cooked chicken, shredded

    ¼ cup jalapeños, diced

    1 teaspoon cumin

    1 teaspoon garlic powder

    1 teaspoon salt

    1 ½ cups crema table cream

    24 soft corn tortillas

    Oil for frying



    Cotija cheese



    1. In a sauce pan, over medium-high heat, combine all taquito filling ingredients. 2. Mix well and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    3. Wrap tortillas in a damp towel and microwave for 15-20 seconds.

    4. Place about 2 tablespoons of filling across the tortilla about ⅓ of the way up from the bottom of the tortilla, and roll the tortilla around the filling.

    5. Heat about ¼ inch of oil over medium-high heat. Carefully, place 3-4 taquitos in the oil, and cook for 3 minutes on each side. (Frying them seam side down first helps them stay closed during frying!)

    6. Remove from the pan and drain excess oil on the taquito on a paper towel.

    7. Place cooked taquitos on a bed of lettuce and garnish with crema, cilantro, cotija, and avocado.

    8. Serve & enjoy!
