How To Make Creamy Jalapeño Chicken Taquitos
These chicken taquitos are flavored with jalapeno, cumin, and cream. Serve this with some avocado and cilantro for more flavor and texture.
In a sauce pan, over medium-high heat, combine all taquito filling ingredients. Mix well and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Wrap tortillas in a damp towel and microwave for 15 to 20 seconds.
Place about 2 tablespoons of filling across the tortilla about ⅓ of the way up from the bottom of the tortilla, and roll the tortilla around the filling.
Heat about ¼ inch (½ cm) of oil over medium-high heat. Carefully, place 3 to 4 taquitos in the oil, and cook for 3 minutes on each side.
Remove from the pan and drain excess oil on the taquito on a paper towel.
Place cooked taquitos on a bed of lettuce and garnish with crema, cilantro, cotija, and avocado.
