I adjusted the recipe to make it low fat, but since they are baked you're well off to begin with. Jason & I were both pleased that they did get pretty crispy without the greasy fried taste.
- 3oz fat free cream cheese
- 1/3 cup salsa verde
- juice of 1/2 lime
- 1 t chile powder
- 1/2 t ground cumin
- pinch cayenne pepper
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 3 T fine chopped onion
- 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded (I used a rotisserie chicken to make things easier)
- 1/2 cup 2% shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup 2% shredded Mexican Blend cheese
- 12 6" corn tortillas
- salt & pepper
- cooking spray
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, salsa, lime juice & spices. Mix well and stir in chicken & shredded cheeses. Add additional salt & pepper if needed.
Warm the tortillas, a few at a time, in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons into each tortilla and roll tightly. Place seam side-down on the baking sheet. Spray each taquito with cooking spray, add a small sprinkle of salt & bake until they are crisp and golden-brown, about 15-20 minutes.
Weight Watchers PointsPlus: 3 points each, however when I added a serving of 3 it calculated 9 points. They are very filling and a great low-point dinner if you add fat free sour cream.
