Baked Chicken Taquitos

I brought lots of great ingredients home from Oregon for a Mexican feast:  avocados, limes, cilantro, and fresh tomatoes.  Tonight I made a nice dinner with baked taquitos, homemade pico ce gallo, and guacamole dip.  Muy bueno!  These only bake for 10 minutes so they won't  heat up your kitchen too much.  I just precooked my chicken in the crockpot. This recipe will make 8 taquitos.

1 cooked and shredded chicken breast
2/3 c. Greek yogurt
1 c. shredded cheese ( I used Cheddar but you could also use Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack)
1/2 t. cumin
1 garlic clove
2 wedges of The Laughing Cow Queso Fresco and Chipolte cheese
1 green onion, chopped
1/2 lime, juiced
Combine all of the above ingredients in a bowl.  This is your taquito's filling.

8 white flour tortillas

Along one edge of each tortilla place several large T. of filling.  Roll up and place on a greased cookie sheet.  When all tortillas are on the sheet, brush each with a small amount of olive oil.

Bake at 400 for 5 minutes.  Flip the taquitos over and brush with oil on the other side.  Bake another 5 minutes.  Serve with guacamole and pico de gallo.
