  • Ready In

  1. Bring water to a simmer in a skillet over medium heat; add chicken. Cover skillet and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 20 to 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove chicken from water and cool; shred with a fork.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir chicken, tomatoes, green onions, chicken broth, flour, garlic, cumin, oregano, chili powder, and salt until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Heat remaining vegetable oil in a heavy 10-inch skillet over medium heat; carefully dip tortillas in the hot oil to soften, about 1 minute. Remove tortillas with tongs and drain on paper towels, reserving oil. Heat oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Spoon about 2 tablespoons chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla. Tightly roll each tortilla around the filling and secure with a wooden toothpick.
  5. Fry rolled-up tortillas, working in batches, in hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove taquitos with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Serve taquitos on a bed of shredded lettuce with guacamole on the side.

Great filling! I used chives instead of green onions and upped the cumin to 2 tsp. I also used taco sized flour tortillas, brushed on olive oil and baked at 425 for 15 min instead of frying. Oh...

This filling is GREAT! if it were just the filling I would give this 5 stars(more if I could). However, it could just be that corn tortillas hate me, but in any case the tortillas just broke. Wh...

Prepared the taquitos exactly as listed above....delicious!! Family ate them up. Recipe is definitely a keeper!!! Going to try them baked next time.

Excellent!
