This is an amazingly tasty recipe you should all try at least once! (Though I already know if you give it a try, it’ll go right to the top of your weekly menus!)

Its not the healthiest recipe i’ve ever made, nor the fastest one i’ve ever put together, but its worth every calorie and minute!

Let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

3oz Cream Cheese, softened
⅓ cup Chipotle Ranch Dressing (Recipe to Follow)
1 tsp Chili Powder
½ tsp Cumin
¼ Onion, diced
1 Clove Garlic, minced
1 small handful of Cilantro, chopped
¼tsp Salt
¼tsp Pepper
2 Chicken Breasts, shredded (Directions to Follow)
1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 dozen (6-inch) Wheat or Flour Tortillas
Guacamole, for serving (optional but AMAZING)
Sour Cream, for serving (optional but AMAZING)

Ingredients for Chipotle Ranch Dressing:

¾ cup Mayonnaise
1 cup of Plain Fage Greek Yogurt (or Sour Cream)
3 Chipotle Peppers (canned) in Adobo Sauce, and add 1 Tbsp Sauce
1 Tbsp Lime Juice
1 small bunch of Chives
1 small handful of Cilantro
1 clove of Garlic
½ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Pepper
½ cup Whole Milk
* Put all of the ingredients into a blender and blend away! I usually taste it once its been blended to be sure its the right texture (you can always add more milk / yogurt too thin or thicken it up) and make sure the spices are strong but not overwhelming. Remember: Youll want the mixture pretty strong because this will be going inside the taquitos to flavor them, not used as a dipping sauce.

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425, and lightly spray a pan with cooking spray. Then mix together the cream cheese, chipotle ranch dressing, chili powder, cumin, onion, garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper together well. Then add the shredded chicken and shredded cheese to that mixture and mix well.

Place about 3 TBSP of that mixture into each shells and roll up tightly. Place the taquito open side down in the pan. Bake them for about 15 minutes.
