Why I Love This Recipe
Sweet corn, shredded chicken and a creamy filling wrapped in a corn tortilla then fried to a crispy golden brown.
Ingredients You'll Need
12 corn tortillas
1 medium chicken breast cooked and shredded
3 Tbs mayonnaise
1 Tbs sour cream
2 Tbs cream cheese
2 Tbs lime juice
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 Tbs jalapenos chopped
1 Tbs cilantro chopped
1/2 cup mexican style cheese
1 cup sweet corn
1/2 tsp garlic powders
oil for frying
Cook the chicken breast then shred it to make small pieces. (Try the KitchenAid mixer!)
To a bowl with the chicken in it add the rest of the ingredients for the filling: mayo, cream cheese, sour cream, lime juice, corn, cilantro, cheese and spices. Stir to combine.
Add enough oil to the bottom of the pan that it will fry these up around 1/2 cup. While the oil heats up start assembling the taquitos.
Place the filling along the longest end, not too much that it spills out. Roll the it up.
Once the oil is heated up place the tortilla in seam side down. Fry for 2 minutes, then flip. Fry for another 2 minutes then place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
Work the taquitos in batches of 2-3 depending on the size of your frying pan.
Serve with sour cream, chopped tomatoes and lettuce. Enjoy!
