Baked Chicken Taquitos (Weelicious Cookbook)

This is a really exciting week in the world of food and blogs and cookbooks… my friend Catherine McCord of Weelicious.com has just published her first cookbook:  Weelicious- One Family. One Meal. 140 Fast, Fresh and Easy Recipes.  It’s a fabulous, must-have book for families who have kids… picky kids… kids who like food… kids who are tough to please… any kids… and parents who need to FEED those kids!  I made Baked Chicken Taquitos from the Weelicious Cookbook!

Most of the world calls these “taquitos,” but in San Diego, these are affectionately called, “Three Rolled Tacos with Guacamole.”  We have a zillion of these little Mexican fast food shacks around town- and the ever popular favorite thing to order is the rolled tacos with guac.  They’re deep fried and probably rather evil to consume, but the Weelicious Cookbook shows us how to make a healthier, baked version.

Corn tortillas are lightly stuffed with spiced-up, shredded chicken and cheese, and then they’re rolled up tightly.

Placed on a baking sheet seam-side-down, they are lightly sprayed with cooking spray and then baked for 25 minutes.  That’s it!  While they’re baking, you can whip up a quick guacamole (see recipe for details).  Catherine has a recipe for Avocado- Lime Sauce in the cookbook, but since my son is obsessed with my guacamole, I had to go with that.


Perfectly crispy out of the oven, the San Diego way to serve them is to melt a little more shredded cheese on top and add a big dollop of guacamole and sour cream.  You can serve them however you’d like, of course.  Even if you just want a little dunker of salsa instead of the guacamole deal, that works too.  These taquitos were a MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR hit with my family.  So good.  This recipe will definitely be a repeater in the Recipe Girl house.  And I loved that they were baked– and not deep fried!!  Thanks, Catherine- for a great, family-friendly recipe!

Weelicious offers recipes for fresh, healthy, appealing meals for young kids.  Author Catherine McCord teaches parents how to turn their kids into great eaters who appreciate food and are open to exciting new flavors.  I love that Catherine focuses on getting kids involved in the kitchen from Day 1- introducing them to a variety of foods and including them in the cooking process.  Recipes include first foods like baby purees and teething cookies, then moves on to include all meals of the day.  My kiddo has tagged a bunch of recipes for us to try, including: Blueberry- Lemon Whole Wheat Pancakes, Oatmeal On-the-Go Bars, Pumpkin Waffles, Apple- Cinnamon Sticks, Strawberry Fruit Leather, Un-Fried Chicken Tenders, Baked Shells, Mexican Lasagna, Raspberry Cream Cheese Tarts, Banana Bread Cake and Banana-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Everything looks so good, and this is such a perfect cookbook for families to have at hand.  I wholeheartedly recommend it!

Baked Chicken Taquitos

Yield: 12 taquitos

Prep Time: 25 min

Cook Time: 25 min

Ingredients:

3 cups shredded roasted chicken
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (or cheddar)
12 corn tortillas
cooking spray
guacamole (see tips) and/or sour cream or salsa

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray.

2. Combine the chicken in a bowl with the cumin, salt and garlic powder- mix in the cheese.

3. Place 2 corn tortillas at a time in between two damp paper towels and microwave for 20 to 30 seconds to soften them (helps to prevent cracking when rolling).

4. With 1 tortilla in front of you, place about 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture in the center of the tortilla and roll it up tightly. Place the taquito seam-side-down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas and filling.

5. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray, and bake for 22 to 25 minutes, or until crisp. Serve with guacamole/sour cream/ salsa, as desired.

Tips:

*Purchase a chicken already roasted from the market- or make your own- place 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts in a steamer pot over boiling water and steam for 10 to 15 minutes, until cooked through. Cool slightly and then use a fork to shred it apart.
*To make easy guacamole for dipping: Mash 1 large avocado with 2 tablespoons sour cream, 1 spoonful of salsa, 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice and salt and pepper, to taste.
*If you are preparing this recipe as gluten-free, just be sure to use a brand of corn tortillas that is known to be GF (and it's probably safest if you cook and shred your own chicken).
*Freezing instructions: After step 4, the taquitos can be frozen in freezer zip bags for up to 3 months. I freeze them on the baking sheet, then take them out of the freezer and move them to zip bags. Prepare from step 5 when ready to bake them from the freezer.

    Our go-to meal is chili mac, but made waaaaay healthier with turkey, homemade taco seasoning, and whole wheat pasta. It’s no guilt, in my book! :)

    I think or go to meals would have to be pizza or Mac & Cheese. If I serve Mac & Cheese my 2 1/2 year old and my hubby always eat it. Lately my 2 1/2 year old has asked for Mac & Cheese every time I have asked what she wanted to eat (Including breakfast just now!). Crazy girl.

    marguerite — September 19, 2012 @ 6:25 AM

    Nice!!! I make these all the time and after living in San Diego for 15 years I still call them rolled tacos and I always eat them with cheese & guac on top! My family prefers to dip them… but I love the gooey mess that comes wrapped up in white paper!

  26. 26

    Nikki — September 19, 2012 @ 6:30 AM

    Pizza. Can never go wrong with pizza! I have yet to attempt homemade, but think I may have finally found a non-intimidating dough recipe. Will definitely be trying these taquitos though. They look yummy!

  27. 27

    Marnely Rodriguez — September 19, 2012 @ 6:38 AM

    Our go to meal is soup! We normally make 8 quarts of soup at a time (we’re just a family of two) and freeze in batches for when we need a quick meal. Add some crusty bread, pasta, or rice and we’re set!

    I love your site! I’ve been following for a few months now and I always look forward to the new posts. This one doesn’t disappoint! Who doesn’t love taquitos?!?! These will be made in the very near future! The go-to recipe/meal for us has to be chicken tacos/burritos. Quick, easy and everyone loves them! To make things easier (and a little leaner) we use ground chicken. We love it!

    Leah — September 19, 2012 @ 7:11 AM

    In our house, fried rice is something everyone is always happy to see. But, I’d sy my go-to meal (like, no one went grocery shopping and we’re hungry now) is breakfast for dinner – pancakes, eggs, bacon (always in the freezer)!

    It’s tough to find something that everyone eats, but I would probably say grilled chicken and steamed seasoned veggies. We just vary the marinades.

  126. 126

    Joanie from CLBB — September 19, 2012 @ 12:07 PM

    Thanks for sharing this recipe, I’m not big on “Mexican,” but these look really tasty. Our current go-to meal is a quick Boboli whole wheat mini pizza (sauce, turkey pepperoni, onions, green peppers, cheese). Can do them in the toaster oven w/o melting the rest of the house. Now that cooler weather is almost here for keeps, a pot o’potato soup is the house go-to.
    Thanks, Lori

  127. 127

    Gary — September 19, 2012 @ 12:21 PM

  251. 251

    Chris — September 20, 2012 @ 7:04 AM

    Not much appeals to all eaters here…but my Baked Salsa Chicken Breasts lend themselves to a variety of meals, whether straight from the oven or shredded with cheese, salsa, and sour cream and scooped up with tortilla chips…so there IS that one thing! I also recently made Manicotti shells (gluten-free from scratch) and made Manicotti that everyone ate, too! Of course, that sausage-egg breakfast scramble stuff always wins! This cookbook could be mighty handy!!!

  252. 252

    Nancy — September 20, 2012 @ 7:04 AM

  310. 310

    Marie — September 20, 2012 @ 12:25 PM

    My favorite “go to” meal would be my home made Chipotle!

    Instead of always going out to get it, I make my own using brown rice, low sodium black beans, grilled veggies, can mexi-corn, salsa, shredded romaine lettuce and of course my home made guac :) For that I use 1 whole avacado, 2 tbs non-fat greek yogurt, a little bit of salsa, salt & peper to tase and a few squirts of lime juice. It’s excellent and it really doesn’t take long. I always have all of these items on hand, so that also makes it an easy “go to” meal.

    April Smith — September 20, 2012 @ 12:52 PM

    My family’s favorite (by that I mean everyone will eat except my vegetarian husband) is Chicken and Dumplings. It is time consuming–rolling and cutting the dumplings (which really are more like large noodles–they don’t puff), but my 8yo loves to help me and so it is worth it. The majority, with only a few naysayers, also like Meatloaf–go figure!

  314. 314

    Trudi — September 20, 2012 @ 12:56 PM

  316. 316

    Gretchen W — September 20, 2012 @ 1:13 PM

    Oh, how I miss three rolled tacos! I’m on Nor Cal now and I was craving them during my past pregnancy and no one understood what I was asking for and I was paying over $10 for them!! We are now a family of 5 and I am really trying to get some frozen meals done so I can have some go to items. Right now I’m on the meatball kick from Real Simple’s 10 ways to do meatballs. Easy to make and freeze to take out whenever we need a back up plan!

  317. 317

    Christina S. — September 20, 2012 @ 1:47 PM

    In the summer, however, it’s gotta be fish tacos.

    Our favorite family go-to meal is breakfast for dinner – pancakes, eggs, and bacon or sausage.

    Made the chicken taquitos for dinner last night…they were a hit!

    Life is like a cutlet in this house. Anything egged and breaded is always the first choice. Beef Cutlets are a tradition in my husbands Sicilian family. For my side of the family Chicken Cutlets! When we have no meat eaters around we go for Eggplant Cutlets. The one thing they all have in common is the homemade breadcrumbs!

    Love your site!

    My “go to” is steak because I grew up on a Cattle farm and no one argues with a T-Bone

    Spaghetti and Meatballs! Yum! My son used to eat so many of them as a young kid. Kids go through phases where they eat more/less so I knew if he hadn’t eaten as well as he should at a few meals I could make this meal and he would go to town on it. When his Nana makes it we call it “exploded meatballs” when she uses just ground beef. Sometimes it’s all in the description!

    I made these for dinner tonight… prefect for a weeknight mexican meal. I used flour tortillas, and they turned out deliciously crispy. Thanks for another keeper.

    I have a whole bunch of corn tortillas that I need to use. I was thinking about making enchiladas, but these look a whole lot better to me right now. I will try these tomorrow since I know they’re something my kids will love.

    I made these last night & although mine fell apart in the oven, we called them “broke-itos” & devoured the whole pan :) Great fun, thanks!
