The hardest things about Blogger’s Choice swaps for me is chosing a recipe to make! Usually, I can find a few dozen I’d be happy to try out. How do I decide? I recruit my husband.
I handed him a list of potential dishes off of Jaida’s blog and he looked at it for about two seconds before declaring, taquitos! So, taquitos it was. I had pre-cooked the chicken and bacon, which made these a super easy weeknight meal. And, the leftovers packed great for lunch the next day.
They were a big hit and I’m sure we’ll be making them again! Thanks, Sarah, for hosting!
Creamy Chicken, Bacon & Green Onion Taquitos
(very slightly adapted from Sweet Beginnings)
Makes about 10 taquitos
For the taquitos:
6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 lb. chicken breast, cooked and shredded
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 green onions, chopped
10 small flour tortillas
For the dipping sauce:
1 large avocado, peeled and pitted
1/2 c. sour cream
1 T. lemon juice
1 1/2 t. rice vinegar
1/8 t. salt
1/8 t. dill weed
1/8 t. pepper
1/4 t. parsley
1/4 t. onion powder
1/4 t. garlic powder
Preheat the oven for 350F degrees.
In a medium bowl, mix together the bacon, chicken, cream cheese and green onions until well combined. Divide mixutre between tortillas and roll up.
Place the rolled taquitos seem-side down on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until browned and crispy.
Meanwhile, in another bowl, mash the avocado. Add remaining dip ingredients and stir until smooth. Serve dip with warm taquitos.
