Cooking with Alex #1-Chicken Taquitos


Okay so I really enjoy cooking and I love finding new recipes to try. I decided that any time they turned out well, I was going to share it with everybody else. Tonight I made these:


I usually find the recipes through pinterest but they are always for more than 4 people, so the main point of this is to teach people how to make these for themselves.


(Here is the real recipe, this is just my single serving spin on it.)


  • Preheat oven to 325
  • Get yourself a chicken breast.
  • Cut off the ick.
  • Grab some foil and spray it with cooking spray.
  • Wrap up the chicken in the foil, put in a pan and stick in the oven for 30 minutes (you can flip it half way through but I don’t think it matters)
  • Don’t worry if it’s a smidge under done, it’ll cook more when it’s in the taquito.
  • Tear it into shreds as big as you’d like.


  • Shredded chicken (enough for 2 taquitos)
  • 1 oz Cream cheese
  • 2 small flour tortillas (idk if corn tortillas will be different because they are gross and I don’t eat those)
  • Mozzarella (however much you want)
  • 2 tbs. of butter
  • garlic powder
  • seasoning of choice (the recipe says cajun but I just used a blend I already had, I don’t think it matters)
  • salsa
  • milk
  • vegetable oil


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a small sauce pot over medium low heat, melt butter.
  • Add seasoning. Stir to combine and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add cream cheese and stir until melted and completely combined with butter and spices.
  • Wisk in hot sauce (about a tablespoon) and milk (also about a tablespoon) and simmer for ~3 minutes. Add salt to taste.
  • Combine chicken and sauce.
  • Lay out a tortillas; fill partially with chicken and top with mozzarella.
  • Tightly roll up taquito (I put a toothpick in mine to keep it shut. Just remember to take it out so you don’t die.) and place on a greased baking sheet.
  • Brush taquitos with vegetable oil on all sides.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes; rotate the taquitos about every 3-5 minutes, until each side is golden brown.

I’m gonna try to do these at least once a week but I’m not that reliable and I’m also a poor college kid so I don’t always have the stuff to make cool things.
