Baked Chicken Taquitos

I love a bit of southwest flavor and these baked taquitos really hit the spot!
My whole family loves them so I usually make up a big batch.
They are really easy and better for you than the fried version.

  4. Place about 2 Tbsp of chicken filling in a line across the middle of the tortilla.
  5. Roll up as tightly as you can.
  6. Place taquitos seam side down on a greased baking sheet. It is best if they do not touch each other.
  7. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray (I like to use an olive oil cooking spray) and sprinkle the tops with a little Kosher salt.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the ends start to get golden brown.
