Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pound chicken breast
  • 1 medium bell pepper, red
  • 1 cup pinto beans
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, plain
  • 2/3 cup salsa
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, ground
  • 1 1/2 cup Mexican cheese blend, shredded
  • 14 tortilla, whole wheat

Instructions

  • Cook and shred chicken. I cooked mine in the slow cooker on low for 7 hours with 1/4 cup chicken broth, but you can cook chicken any way you like.
  • Preheat oven to 425* F and spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Chop red pepper into small pieces. Rinse and drain beans.
  • Mix together chicken, beans, red bell pepper, greek yogurt, tomatillo salsa, cumin, and cheese.
  • Divide mixture evenly between 14 (6 inch) tortillas. Put the mixture in a line down the middle of the tortilla and roll tightly.
  • Place seam side down on a large baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve with avocado, sour cream, and/or salsa.
  • If freezing, allow to cool. Then place taquitos in a single layer in a large zip-lock bag (or two) and freeze. To reheat, either microwave for about 2-4 minutes (time varies based on how many are being re-heated), or bake at 450* F for around 10 minutes, checking regularly to make sure they do not burn.
