This blog is a culmination of two forever-bakers who have spent countless hours reading about, thinking about, and dreaming about baking delicious treats in our spare time. After taking a few cake decorating classes, our interest has soared to no end. While living and working in the same city has been a sweet treat in itself, a move across the state has spawned the desire to keep in touch by taking our love of baking and everything kitchen to the next level. So wipe your feet on the mat and stay awhile!

Chicken Taquitos

Here's the thing, I could eat tex-mex every day for every meal and never get tired of it.  I think proof of this is that my husband and I go to the same restaurant almost every Friday for their hatch chicken enchiladas.  These taquitos really intrigued me, they're definitely not the same thing you'd get out of a frozen box from your grocer's freezers.  The inside is creamy and spicy with just enough spice. 

Chicken Taquitos
from Annie's Eats

3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. salsa
1 tbsp. fresh squeezed lime juice
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
3 tbsp. chopped cilantro
2 green onions, chopped
1 c. shredded Mexican cheese
2 c. shredded chicken
10 6 in. flour tortillas

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Mix all ingredients except the tortillas in a large bowl.  Heat the tortillas slightly in the microwave so that they are easy to roll.  Fill each tortilla with about 3 tbl of filling and roll tightly.  Place seam-side down on a baking sheet, spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.  Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
