Chicken Taquitos

This recipe requires very few ingredients and is super yummy. We do not cook it very often though because it takes awhile to pan fry the taquitos so when we do cook them we cook a big batch. When you see the pictures, please don't think our family ate all of these at one meal. My husband took a ton of them to work to share for lunch and my boys and I were able to eat them the next day for lunch also.

Grilled Chicken breast sliced
Bell pepper and onion sliced
Montery Jack or Monterey Jack cheese with peppers sliced
Corn tortillas
Vegetable oil for pan frying

My husband grilled the chicken breast with some taco seasoning and then broiled the veggies with seasonings also so they were already cooked before rolling in the tortillas.
Then, roll chicken, cheese, onion and bell pepper tightly in a corn tortilla. We find that heating the tortilla on a griddle to soften it before rolling and filling helps keep the tortilla from tearing. We actually do an assembly line system where I am rolling and then placing them in the pan and my husband fries them. They just need to be pan fried not deep fried until brown and crispy.

We like salsa, sour cream and guacamole for dipping.
