    Here is a recipe I make all the time... Enjoy!!!


    1 Kg. Chicken Thighs (boneless, skinless)
    125 g Cream Cheese (light, softened)
    1 cup Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
    1 cup Monterey Jack Cheese (shredded)
    Green Pepper (diced)
    1 Yellow Onion (diced)
    2 Garlic Cloves (pressed)
    4 TBSP Vegetable Oil (divided)
    cup Milk (2%)
    1 cup Salsa
    1 tsp Cumin
    tsp Sugar
    10 Flour Tortillas (10 diameter)

    Cook green pepper, onion, garlic and chicken in a lightly (1 TBSP) oiled pan until soft. Add cream cheese, milk, salsa, Monterey Jack cheese, cumin and sugar. Combine until creamy, shut off pan. Take 1 tortilla shell, add 3 TBSP of mixture into a long, thin line about an inch from the end. Top mixture line with 10% of the shredded cheese, and tightly roll the taquito. The cheddar will seal the taquito closed. Make all ten, place seam down in a large pan in 3 TBSP oil. Cook until golden brown. May be served whole, or cut into 4 equal pieces as appetizers. Tastes excellent with Pico de Gallo, salsa or sour cream and some chopped green onions.
