Creamy Chicken Taquitos

I had some cream cheese to use up and I thought these sounded tasty! Although, mine aren't that small but it could be because I used bigger tortillas.

I did have to use regular salsa as for some reason my store had NO green salsa.

Creamy Chicken Taquitos-shared from Food, Family, and Fun
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup green or red salsa
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp lime juice
1.5 cups cooked chopped chicken
1 cup shredded cheese(I used monteray jack with jalapeƱo)
3 tbsp chopped cilantro(omitted)
2 tbsp sliced green onions(omitted)
flour tortillas
kosher salt

Preheat oven to 425
Mix together lime juice, cream cheese, spices until combined well. Stir in cheese and chicken.

Heat tortillas a couple at a time between paper towels for about 20 secs in the microwave. Place 2-3 tbsp of filling on bottom 1/3 of tortilla and roll up as tightly as you can. Place seem side down on cookie sheet. Continue until all filling is used. Make sure they are not touching each other. Spray tops lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.

Bake for 15-20 mins until golden crisp.

**We did really like these. They were perfectly crispy and not to spicy. They weren't a big hit with the kids, but anything with a touch of spice they don't like!
