Yield:
8 taquitos
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup shredded mild white Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup chunky prepared salsa, plus more for serving, optional
  • Eight 6-inch flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, for serving, optional
Directions
  • Add enough oil to a heavy bottom straight-sided pan to come 2 inches up the sides. Heat over medium heat to 350 degrees F on a deep-fry thermometer.

  • Meanwhile, mix together the chicken, Cheddar, 1/2 cup salsa and the cumin in a medium bowl. Spoon about a 1/4 cup of the mixture into the center of each tortilla. Roll the tortillas tightly around the filling and secure with a toothpick.

  • Working in batches of 2 or 3 at a time, place the taquitos in the hot oil and fry, flipping as needed to brown evenly, until crispy and golden brown, about 3 minutes. Using tongs, remove the taquitos to a paper-towel lined plate to drain. Continue with the remaining taquitos. Serve alongside salsa and sour cream for dipping, if desired.

  • Special equipment: 8 toothpicks
