1 can (16-ounces) fat-free refried beans
1 cup favorite salsa
1 can (12-ounce) chicken, shredded (or 1 lb. shredded chicken)
16 flour tortillas (8-inch)
2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar or pepper jack)
desired dipping sauces: ranch dressing (our favorite), salsa, guacamole
In a medium size bowl, mix together refried beans, salsa, and chicken. Mix well. Spoon by 1/4 cupfuls into tortillas. (NOTE: If needed, you can heat the tortillas in microwave for 10-20 seconds to make them more pliable). Sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons shredded cheese and roll tightly. (We used cheddar cheese for the kids' taquitos and pepper jack for the adults')
Place 1-inch apart on greased baking sheet (make sure the taquitos are not touching each other). Brush tops with olive oil and bake in a 450 degree oven for 7-10 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Serve immediately with salsa, guacamole, or ranch dressing as a dip. Makes 16 taquitos.
