Our local Chef Jahrid Longsworth was thinking about a dish to make for lunch while he is doing his distance learning in middle school. This recipe can be fried or baked.

Chicken Taquitos (with dairy free cheese)


3 cups cooked chicken, shredded

Salt and pepper to taste

3 tsps. chili powder

1 tsp. garlic powder

2 cups shredded mozzarella dairy free cheese

15 small corn tortillas

Oil if frying

Cooking spray if baking


• Place the chicken, salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, cheddar and cheese in a bowl. Stir until combined.

• Wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and place on a plate. Microwave for 1 minute or until tortillas are warm and soft.

Lay out the tortillas on a flat surface and divide the chicken and cheese mixture among the 15 tortillas. Roll up each tortilla tightly and secure with a toothpick.

• To fry the taquitos: Heat oil in a deep pan. Add 3-4 taquitos and fry until crisp and golden brown, 3-5 minutes.

• To bake the taquitos: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the taquitos in a single layer on a sheet pan coated with cooking spray. Spray the tops of the

taquitos with the cooking spray.

• Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.

• Remove toothpicks, then serve.

Enjoy with your favorite salsa!
