Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 8 oz onions finely diced
  • 2 tsp unsalted chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 12 oz skinless boneless chicken breast ground, blended, or finely minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5.3 oz zucchini grated
  • 8 6- inch corn tortillas
  • 2 oz cheddar cheese grated
  • 1.5 oz mozzarella cheese whole milk
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Heat up a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tbsp unsalted butter and 8 oz diced onions. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 2 tsp chili powder and 1 tsp ground cumin; mix in with the onions.
  • Add 12 oz ground/minced/processed chicken breast and season with 1/4 tsp salt. Break down the chicken chunks into small pieces. Cook for 4 minutes. Add 5.3 oz grated zucchini and mix in with the chicken. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  • Warm 8 tortillas by baking them for 2 minutes in the oven. Stack them and place a damp kitchen towel over. Take one tortilla sheet and put it on the cutting board, add the filling, sprinkle cheese on top, and start rolling. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  • Brush with 1 tbsp olive oil and bake for about 15 minutes.
  • Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle chopped parsley to garnish. Serve with guacamole and beverage.

Notes

  • You may want to work quickly when you fold the taquitos because corn tortillas dry out very fast. A good tip to keep them from hardening is to cover them with a dampened kitchen towel.
  • If they do dry out, however, you can sprinkle or spray a bit of water on them and bake for 1 minute to make them pliable again.
