Ingredients

For the salsa

  • 1 can (10 oz.) RO*TEL brand diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 3 tbsp. chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Pinch sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 2-3 tbsp. lime juice

For the taquitos

  • 12 fajita-size flour tortillas (warmed)
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 can (10 oz.) RO*TEL brand Diced Tomatoes, drained
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Salt (optional)
  • RO*TEL Salsa (recipe included) or guacamole, for serving (optional)

Instructions

For the salsa: (It is best if prepared a few hours in advance)

  1. Place all of the salsa ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Cover and pulse 10-15 times or until the salsa is the desired consistency. Taste the salsa with a clean spoon and adjust seasonings if necessary.
  2. Refrigerate until serving time.

For the taquitos:

  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, Monterey Jack cheese and RO*TEL 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.
