3 servings Pico de Gallo
1/2 cup chicken (cooked, finely chopped)
1/2 cup corn (no salt added, canned or frozen, thawed)
1/4 cup green onion (chopped)
1/4 cup bell pepper (green, chopped)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese (shredded, reduced fat, or Monterey jack or queso fresco)
12 corn tortillas
2 teaspoons vegetable oil


1. Heat oven to 425°F. In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup Pico de Gallo,
chicken, corn, green onion, bell pepper, and cheese.

2. Soften tortillas on the stovetop or in the microwave oven, and spoon a heaping tablespoon of filling onto the center of each tortilla. Roll up tightly and secure each with a toothpick.

each lightly with oil. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned.

4. Place 3 taquitos on each plate and serve with remaining Pico de Gallo.

We make this recipe frequently and really like it. My son doesn't like tomatoes, so I make a portion for him with just chicken and cheese. Makes a great meal with rice on the side.
