  • 12 fajita-sized flour tortillas, warmed
  • 2 cups shredded, cooked chicken
  • 4 oz. jalapeno cream cheese
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack, shredded
  • Cooking spray or olive oil
  • Salt
  • 1 container (8 oz.) sour cream
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 limes
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
    In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, cream cheese and Monterey Jack until thoroughly combined.
  2. 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 baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling. Make sure the taquitos are not touching.
  3. Spray the tops of the taquitos lightly with cooking spray or brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake 15-20 minutes or until the taquitos are crisp and golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile, combine the sour cream, jalapeno, the juice of one lime and cilantro in a blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Taste. Add salt and more lime juice (if desired), to taste. Blend until smooth.
  5. Serve the Spicy Jalapeno Chicken Taquitos with the Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce.
