Honey-Lime Taquitos

Baked Honey-Lime Chicken Taquitos
from sweettreatsandmore

makes about 12 taquitos

12 flour or corn tortillas
2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
1/2 cup shredded cheddar or pepper jack cheese

Cooking Spray
Kosher Salt

Honey-Lime Sauce:

2 limes juiced
1/3 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic
3 tablespoons sour cream

Preheat oven to 425.

In a small bowl whisk together the juice of 2-3 limes, honey, cumin, garlic, and sour cream. In another bowl pour the honey-lime sauce over the shredded chicken. Let it marinade for 20-30 minutes.

Mix the cheese in with the chicken mix, and add a dash of salt and pepper.

Place a damp paper towel over one corn tortilla and microwave for 20-30 seconds, until the tortilla is soft and moist, and doesn't crack when you roll it.

Place a spoonful of chicken on one end of the corn tortilla and roll it up tightly.  Repeat until all corn tortillas are rolled.  Place the taquito seam-side down on a lightly greased baking sheet. Lay taquitos next to each other, but not touching. Spray a little cooking spray over the tops of the taquitos and sprinkle with kosher salt.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
