My family loves Mexican and Southwest-style food. There are a few different varieties we enjoy ... this Jalapeno Popper Chicken taquitos recipe is just one of many! I'm sure I'll be sharing some of the other taquitos recipes throughout football season! ;)

I'm going to keep the intro short and sweet today, so let's just get to the recipe! :)

Jalapeno Popper Chicken Taquitos
by Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes
Yield: (12 taquitos)

  • 12 fajita-size flour tortillas (warmed)
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Salt (optional)
  • Salsa or guacamole, for serving (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a 15x11-inch baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, cream cheese, Cheddar, bacon and jalapeno until thoroughly combined. Spoon 2-3 tbsp. of the chicken mixture onto each tortilla. Roll the tortilla around the filling as tight as you can. Place seam side down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling. Make sure the taquitos are not touching. Lightly brush each taquito with vegetable oil. Sprinkle with salt, if desired.

3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the taquitos are crisp and golden brown.

4. Serve hot with salsa or guacamole.

  1. I love taquitos but have never made them. I'm thinking these with bacon should be on my menu soon!

    1. They're perfect for a quick dinner idea! Thanks for stopping by, Julie! :)

  2. Wow - these look pretty tasty - perfect for game day or any time!!

    1. Yes! With football season, these would be a hit!

  3. We love Mexican too...and I love the fact that you can adjust the spice according to taste. SO delicious!!

  4. Chicken and bacon and jalapeno are really good friends. I think I need to try this taquito method (and recipe) as a new dinner idea in my house.
    That's actually a huge compliment. I really struggle to come up with new ideas I think everyone will like that aren't crazy unhealthy. Ummm, I might substitute some of that cream cheese with refried beans, but other than that, I'm stoked.
    I'm pinning this. Thanks.

    1. Thanks so much for the pin, Julie! I hope you enjoy the recipe! :)

  7. Love these flavors, Jamie!
