2cupscooked chickenleftover roast chicken works great OR 2 cups ground/shredded beef
juice from 1/2 lime
10flour or corn tortilla shells
Mix the first nine ingredients in large bowl until well combined. At this point, you can taste and add more seasonings or lime juice if you like.
Place a small amount of mix into each shell and roll tightly. Place seam down on a baking sheet (use a toothpick in each one if they keep unrolling) and brush with melted butter.
Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes, until just starting to brown.
Variations *You can also fry these in a bit of butter on the stove-top for more crunch. This tends to make them even more "man friendly". *These also make great beef taquitos though I left out the lime juice. *A dipping sauce goes wonderfully with these and either the avocado aioli or the spicy dressing pairs perfectly. The picture above actually shows a quickly made up dip when I had nothing else on hand; 1/3 cup tomato sauce, 1 oz cream cheese, 1/2 clove garlic, 2 tsp chopped onion, 1/4 tsp cumin, and 1/2 tsp chili powder.
