Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup shredded/pulled chicken rotisserie chicken is fine
  • 1 cup of Ranch dressing see notes
  • 3 heaping tablespoon Salsa mild or spicy, your choice!
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 small gluten-free tortillas warmed (see notes in the recipe card or in the beginning of this blog post)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon fajita spice mix
  • 2 tablespoon green onion chopped
  • ½ cup corn canned or fresh
  • ½ cheddar cheese shredded (see notes)

Instructions
 

  • Prep. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Grease casserole (9 x 13) with oil.
  • In a medium bowl mix shredded chicken, spices, corn, cheese, salsa, and ranch dressing. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Roll. Take one tortilla (warmed) and add 1 heaping tablespoon of the filling in the middle of the tortilla, roll it together, and set aside on a plate (seam side down).
  • Bake for 10 minutes until they start to change to golden brown color. Tortillas should be slightly crispy on the outside.

Notes

  • Ranch dressing - make your own ranch dressing or buy from the store. Don't have or don't want to use ranch dressing? Then mix sour cream or yogurt Italian herbs, garlic, and onion powder, and some salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Cream cheese taquitos - swap the ranch dressing for cream cheese and add few dried herbs to the mix. Or simply use the same filling from Creamy Chicken Tacos.
  • Corn tortillas (or any tortillas) are more flexible and easier to roll if heated first. Wrap them in foil and bake in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes.
  • Cheese - the more cheese the better! I always love my tortilla wraps, taquitos, tacos with lots of cheese and the best is to use two types of cheeses either varieties of Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese. You can also use grated mozzarella which melts fantastically!
  • Add some color - try different combinations of tortillas like corn, wheat, naturally colored tortillas with spinach/sun-dried tomatoes/beetroot/carrots/poblano peppers/curry/turmeric.
