Baked Chicken Fajita Taquitos

Print

Rolled tacos, taquitos, whatever you want to call them – these were my jam back in the day! I always ordered them from every taco shop I went to and devoured them IMMEDIATELY after! (Seriously, they NEVER lasted the car ride home…) So you can imagine how stoked I was when I actually recreated my childhood obsession at home with these incredibly easy Baked Chicken Fajita Taquitos!

HOW TO ROLL TAQUITOS:

  1. Place your corn tortilla in the microwave (3 at a time) and heat for 30-40 seconds. (Make sure the tortillas are VERY pliable!
  2. Lay one tortilla on a cutting board and place your chicken filling and sprinkle of cheese at the top of the tortilla.
  3. Gently roll the tortilla over the filling and continue rolling until you reach the other side.
    • (Some of the filling might fall out when you’re rolling it so you may need to stuff some back in on the sides once the taquito is rolled.)
  4. Place the rolled taquito “seam side” down on a baking sheet that’s been lined with parchment paper.
  5. Repeat with your remaining tortillas.

Spicy chicken, tender veggies and a sprinkle of cheese – all loaded in a crispy rolled tortilla shell! You won’t believe how easy and delicious these Baked Chicken Fajita Taquitos are!

Further Food Commentary:

Compared to flour tortillas, corn tortillas are lower in calories, fat content, carbohydrates and generally higher in fiber. This means that if you're trying to eat a bit healthier and cut back in those areas when possible, switching to corn tortillas may still allow you to get your weekly fix of Mexican food.

Baked Chicken Fajita Taquitos

  • Prep Time:10 Minutes
  • Cook Time:20 Minutes
  • Servings: 13 Taquitos

Ingredients

13 corn tortillas

4 chicken tenders

¼ red bell pepper, chopped

¼ green bell pepper, chopped

¼ white onion, chopped

Fajita seasoning

Shredded cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Season chicken tenders with fajita seasoning on both sides and set them aside. Heat a saute pan over medium high heat. Once hot, spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray and add the chicken tenders. Cook tenders for 2-3 minutes per side. Shred them when done and place them in a bowl.
  3. Add the chopped bell peppers and onions to the same pan and saute them until tender. (About 2-3 minutes) Once done, add them to the bowl with the shredded chicken and stir. (You may want to add more fajita seasoning at this point so make sure to taste it!)
  4. Take 3 tortillas at a time and put them on a paper plate with a damp paper towel covering them. Place them in the microwave and heat for 30-40 seconds or until the tortillas are VERY pliable.
  5. Take a spoonful of the chicken mixture and place it at one end of the tortilla. Add a sprinkle of cheese (if using) and carefully roll the tortilla over the mixture and keep rolling until you come to the other end. (DO NOT OVER STUFF THEM! If you notice the tortilla is not rolling properly or you’re having trouble, try taking some of the filling out and re-rolling it.)
  6. Place the taquito “seam side” down on a baking sheet lined with parchment and repeat the process with the remaining tortillas.
  7. Once all the taquitos are rolled, place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. (You can also spray the taquitos with avocado oil spray and sprinkle some salt on top before baking.)
  8. Serve them with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
