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!
