Chicken Taquitos and Grilled Spinach-Bacon Pizza and Blog Hop! Updated: 9/10

By C. Hawkins - 09:49

I’m all for easy and flavorful recipes. Here’s another one for the collection! Chicken Taquitos :) This is soooo simple to make and tastes delicious paired with a bit of sour cream. My partner and I scoffed these down in a matter of minutes. Great appetizers! Or if you make a bunch pair it with spanish rice and pico de gallo for a nice main. I had a few for appetizers. I used regular sized tortilla but if you are going to use them as appetizers I recommend using small tortillas. Unless its for the footy or something then the bigger the better! :) 

For my main I made a delicious spinach and bacon pizza on the grill. My partner and I love spinach pizza and I decided to add bacon at the last minute which crisped up nicely on the grill and made for a lovely pizza. Check it out!

Chicken Taquitos 
  1. Shredded cooked chicken
  2. 2 tablespoon of salsa
  3. 1 tablespoon of sour cream
  4. 1 tablespoon of cream cheese 
  5. Small handful of chopped chives (save a few for garnish)
  6. Small handful of chopped cilantro (coriander) 
  7. Salt and Pepper to taste 
  8. Oil for light frying 


Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly until cream cheese is softened and well combined. Season with a bit of S&P to taste. Take out your tortillas. If they are bit stiff and dry wet they with a bit of water. This will help them roll easily into form. Place nice spoonfuls of the mixture on one side of the tortilla. Roll the tortilla up, and place the open flap face down into the oil to seal. Let it fry until golden brown, turning so it cooks evenly. Serve with sour cream, sprinkled with a bit of chopped chives. 

Yum! Here is a picture of my spinach and bacon pizza. I season the base before adding my ingredients with a bit of chicken salt and italian herbs seasoning.

Simply layer Alfredo sauce, red onion, spinach, mushroomschopped bacon, and cheddar cheese. Season with a bit of pepper and grill !
