Skinny Chicken & Cheese Taquitos

Standard

Mine didn’t turn out very pretty, but once I tasted them I didn’t care! My husband & I had to split the last one cause we both really wanted it!

I think next time I won’t use the extra thin tortillas to see if that makes a difference in the tortilla not cracking & looking ugly. I am pretty sure those are higher in points though.

Original recipe from http://www.kitchme.com

1 serving = 2 weight watchers points+

Ingredients –
8 – 6 inch extra thin corn tortillas

Remove 1 tortilla & lightly spray both sides with non stick cooking spray.
Spoon 2 tbsp filling onto tortilla & roll up.
Use tooth picks to secure it & place seam side down on a greased baking sheet.
Repeat with each tortilla.
