Chicken Taquitos

These are excellent alternatives to the overly processed versions you find in the freezer section at the store. They keep well in the fridge for a make ahead meal and are totally delicious.


1 rotisserie chicken 
1 1/2 cups of your favorite tomatillo salsa
1 package of taco sized corn or flour tortillas
1 cup shredded cheese
Black beans* optional


Heat the oven to 400.

Shred all of the meat from the bone of the chicken and place the shredded pieces into a large mixing bowl with the tomatillo sauce and cheese. Mix together well. Add in optional ingredients here. *The mixture should be moist but not dripping with sauce. 

Scoop 1 tablespoon of the mixture evenly into a tortilla and place into a 9x11 baking dish "seam" down so that it won't unroll during baking.  Repeat until your pan is full. Cook in oven for about 15 min, turn and cook for another 10. 

Great while served warm with spring salad and orange slices.
