"Taquito's" with Guac-ey-Pico

Thought you might enjoy a quick, easy, healthy weeknight meal recipe. These are simple and full of fresh ingredients and once you get the hang of folding the tortillas without them cracking... they are super easy to throw together! Play around with the ingredients and enjoy!

Chicken Taquito's

1 store bought rotisserie chicken
1/2 jalapeno pepper (finely chopped)
juice of 1 lime
1 t salt
1 t onion powder
1 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese
12 white corn tortillas

Shred the meat off the entire chicken and place in a large bowl along with all remaining ingredients, set aside. Warm tortillas in the microwave for 25 seconds then place a damp, warm kitchen towel over them (yo prevent drying). Fill each tortilla and wrap to close then place on a well greased baking sheet. Spray the top of each taquito with cooking spray as well. Heat oven to 375. Make the following:


2 avocados
3 Roma tomatoes, chopped
2 T finely chopped onion
1/2 jalapeno (finely chopped)
juice of 2 limes
2 t salt
1/4 t cayenne pepper

Chop avocado, tomato, onion and jalapeno in a dish. Squeeze lime juice over the veggies and add salt and cayenne pepper. Toss well. Serve alongside taquito's.

Bake taquito's for 15 minutes (until crispy).

I read that today is National Margarita Day... have one with this meal or serve this for dessert! Cheers!
