Ingredients

  • 1

    tablespoon garlic pepper

  • 2

    teaspoons seasoning salt (such as Lawry's)

  • 1

    teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1

    teaspoon cumin

  • 3

    tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 3

    boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 1

    jalapeno, seeded as desired and diced

  • 1/2

    cup chopped onion

  • 1

    cup each shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheese

  • 1

    (10 count) package small flour tortillas (soft taco sized)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously coat a foil-lined, rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. In a small mixing bowl combine the garlic pepper, seasoning salt, smoked paprika, and cumin. Set aside. Cut chicken breasts into very small pieces. Coat the bottom of a large saute pan with 3 tablespoons vegetable oil and place over medium heat. When oil is nice and hot, cook the chicken just until cooked through and no longer pink in center. Add the diced jalapeno and onion and continue to cook and stir for another minute or two until onion begins to soften. Add the seasoning mix and stir well to coat all the pieces of chicken. Remove pan from the heat. Add shredded cheddar and jack cheese to the chicken mixture and stir to combine. Cheese will melt into the warm meat mixture. Warm the entire stack of tortillas in the microwave for about 20 seconds just to soften them slightly. Lay a tortilla on a cutting board or other work surface and place a couple tablespoons of the meat filling down the center of the tortilla. Fold in the both sides and then roll the tortilla up. Place seam side down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Coat the tops of the taquitos with additional non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. Pull baking sheet out of the oven and using tongs, flip each taquito over to brown the other side. Return to the oven for an additional 5 or 10 minutes or till nicely browned on both sides. Serve with sour cream, guacamole, and salsa on the side.
