Chicken, Bacon & Ranch Taquitos Ingredients:
- rotisserie chicken
- low-fat cream cheese
- Monterey Jack cheese
- green onions
- dry ranch dressing mix
- flour tortillas
How to make Baked Chicken, Bacon & Ranch Taquitos:
First, fry up all the bacon; drain and crumble. While bacon is frying, debone the rotisserie chicken and shred the meat.
In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, bacon, chicken, cheese and green onions. Stir in dry ranch dressing mix.
Preheat oven to 425°F and while oven is preheating take a large baking sheet and cover it with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Spray with some cooking spray.
Lay out several flour tortillas like an assembly line and spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture onto each flour tortilla. Roll each one up and place them seam-side down onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until you use up all the filling.
Once all of the taquitos are rolled, spray the tops of each taquito with cooking spray, and sprinkle with a bit of salt. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until edges and tops are golden.
These are yummy to serve with ranch dressing or salsa on the side.

Can baked taquitos be frozen?
Absolutely! This recipe makes a ton so you'll want to plan to freeze the leftovers. 🙂
After baking, cool and flash freeze on a baking sheet. Remove from freezer and place in a ziptop freezer bag. These will last in the freezer up to 3 months.
To bake from frozen, preheat oven to 400°F. Bake 7-10 minutes or until warm and crunchy.
