Chicken Taquitos

 This is what I made for the after school kids yesterday...chicken taquitos.  The kids eat everything that I send to them but certain things are their favorites and these are always popular.  I made 8 quarts of salsa to go with them.

 For the filling, dice cooked chicken (I used about 7 quarts but I made almost 100 of these), 3 blocks of cream cheese (8oz), 6 cups of grated cheddar cheese, granulated garlic and onion, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper or you can use packaged taco seasoning. Squeeze in the juice of 3 limes.

 Mix it thoroughly.  I also added corn.

 Roll some filling in flour tortillas.

 Place them seam side down and brush with oil.

Bake them in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes until they begin to brown.   These can be served warm or at room temperature.
