  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 (4-ounce) can of green chiles, drained

  • 2 cups shredded chicken

  • 12 to 14 corn tortillas, taco size

  • 1 cup jack cheese

  • Olive oil cooking spray


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit

2. Put extra virgin olive oil and chopped onion into your Lodge pre-seasoned cast iron pan and saute over medium-high heat until the onion is soft. Add chipotle peppers, black pepper, sea salt and green chiles, then continue to saute on medium-high heat for another five minutes. Then, stir in the shredded chicken and transfer the mixture to a separate bowl.

To form the taquitos, roll the cheese and the chicken mixture into each tortilla and place it into a glass baking dish. Once the tortillas are in the dish, top them with olive oil cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes.

4. To serve, top taquitos with guacamole, pico de gallo and cilantro.
