I had to buy tortillas for a work luncheon. They didn't even get touched. I bought 50. Sigh. What to do with them? Taquitos like a mug...
BBQ Chicken Taquitos
2 1/2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or processed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used a triple cheddar mix)
3/4 cups bottled bbq sauce
1/4 cups finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
10 corn tortillas
vegetable oil for frying
Heat about 3 inches of vegetable oil in a large stock pot, or heat up your Fry Daddy ;) In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, bbq sauce, red onion and cilantro. Mix well. Heat corn tortillas in microwave for a few seconds to make them easier to handle. Lay out corn tortilla and spoon about 2 tbs. worth of chicken mixture on, roll up as tight as you can without tearing. secure with a toothpick. Repeat with all tortillas or until mixture is used up. Drop in hot oil 2 at a time, fry until golden brown. Let drain on a wire rack lined cookie sheet to keep crunchy. Let cool slightly and eat immediately. I don't see you being able to resist anyway.
I don't even have any recommendations on dipping sauce. I think that would just ruin these little delicious taquitos, but of course you can do what you want. Whatever.
