  • 2 cups chicken , shredded or chopped
  • 2 ounces cream cheese , softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt , to taste
  • 10 whole about 10 whole-wheat flour tortillas
  • 1 tbsp neutral oil , for baking, like avocado oil, light olive oil, or refined coconut oil


  • Preheat oven to 350º. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet.
  • Combine first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well.
  • Soften tortillas by wrapping a few at a time in a damp paper towel and microwaving in 15 seconds bursts, until a bit warm but not hot. Working with one at a time, spoon about 2 rounded tablespoons of chicken filling in the middle of the tortilla. Spread loosely towards the edges, keeping in a line shape, staying about a 1/2"-3/4" from the edge. Roll tightly and place seam-side down on the wire rack. Repeat until all filling is used. Brush taquitos generously with oil on all sides and bake 18-22 minutes, or until a bit browned and crispy. Remove from oven and serve with avocado salsa.


Serve with avocado salsa.
