Weight Watchers Chicken and Cheese Taquitos Recipe. If you’re searching for a healthier and mouthwatering alternative to conventional Mexican taquitos, then check out this healthier version.

It’s perfect for a quick and flavorful weeknight dinner or as an appetizer for any gathering.

The recipe calls for canned chicken that is drained well, salsa, shredded fat-free cheddar cheese, and dry taco seasoning mix. When these ingredients are combined, it creates a flavorful filling that will be rolled into corn tortillas.

It’s crucial to use corn tortillas for this recipe as they have fewer calories and less fat than flour tortillas. If you can’t find small tortillas, simply trim down larger ones using a knife.

When you have your filling and tortillas prepared, assemble the taquitos by spreading a spoonful of the mixture onto each tortilla, roll it up tightly, and put it on a baking sheet with the seam-side down. Repeat with the remaining filling and tortillas, and bake until golden and crispy.

For extra flavor, you may serve the taquitos with enchilada sauce, salsa, guacamole, or sour cream. Alternatively, enjoy them as they are.
