Baked Chicken & Ham Taquitos

Baked Chicken & Ham Taquitos,  that’s what I finally decided to call these creamy, cheesy, chicken and ham filled flour tortilla’s baked until crisp, sprinkled with more cheese and then… if you want, served with a garlic cream sauce over top.

I’m great at recipe creation, not so much at naming those creations!  I was calling this dish Chicken Cordon Blue Wraps, or Chicken Cordon Blue taquitos, or Chicken & Ham Roll Ups, among other things.   What I do know is that they are delicious,  scoring an average 9.5/10 at our dinner table which consisted of 3 teenagers and 3 adults this particular night.   In fact, the Baked Chicken & Ham Taquito’s themselves scored a perfect 10, but some didn’t “prefer” the rice I served as a side, it had frozen peas in it (gasp), the horror!!

In addition to being a perfect 10 on the flavour rating scale, this recipe is made using ingredients that I have on hand almost 100% of the time, is SUPER easy to prepare,  bakes in one dish, so easy clean up, and if that wasn’t enough, you can make them ahead of time as part of your weekly meal prepping plan!  Oh, yes, this is a win, win, win.

Oh, and because they are baked, and not fried, and aren’t topped with sauce, you can bake them until the flour tortilla is crisp they reheat very well in the microwave and are the perfect portable meal for a night when you need to eat on the run.    What’s not to like?  You need to make them to find out for yourself!

Notes

I serve these Chicken and Ham Taquito's with Garlic Herb Rice Pilaf and salad.   You can top with sour cream, or lime crema or warm garlic cream sauce or eat them as is.
If you want to make these as a snack, use the smaller flour tortillas and use only 1/4 cup filling for each roll.  These make excellent snacks.
