Baked Chicken And Cheese Taquitos Recipe

Skip the deep-fryer and the frozen aisle with this fast, fresh, and family-favorite Baked Chicken and Cheese Taquitos dish.


– 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil – 1 cup diced yellow onion – 2 cloves garlic, minced – 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice – 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin – 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika – 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt – 1/4 teaspoon fresh black pepper – 3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken – 1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese – 12 (6-inch) flour tortilla


Start by preheating the oven to 425ºF and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper 

Step 1

In a large saucepan, heat olive oil on medium. Add diced onion and heat until translucent, 3–5 minutes. Stir occasionally as the garlic cooks for 3 minutes until golden and aromatic.

Step 2

Place the skillet on low heat and stir in the lime juice, cumin, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Toss in shredded chicken.

Step 3

Let the chicken mixture cool for 10 minutes in a large bowl before adding the shredded cheese.

Step 4

Spread 3 tablespoons of chicken mixture on the lower third of each tortilla on a work surface. Roll the tortilla tightly, fasten it with a toothpick, and lay it seam-side down on the baking sheet. 

Step 5

Fill and roll the remaining tortillas. Bake the taquitos for 15–20 minutes until crispy. Air fryer instructions are below. Serve salsa and guacamole.
