Serves: 16 taquitos
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 6 oz chopped or shredded turkey
  • ½ tbs chili powder
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ¾ cup mashed potatoes
  • 1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes and green chiles (I used Rotel brand)
  • 3 oz light cream cheese
  • Salt
  • 16 corn tortillas
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add turkey, chili powder, and cumin and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute.
  3. Stir in the mashed potatoes, diced tomatoes and chiles. Then, add the cream cheese. Stir together until combined. Give the mixture a taste and add salt if needed.
  4. Dampen a few paper towels with water. Wrap the stack of corn tortillas in the paper towels and microwave for 30 seconds. This will ensure your tortillas are pliable and won’t break when rolling them up.
  5. Place a corn tortilla on a flat surface and drop a ¼ cup of the turkey mixture in the front half of the tortilla. Spread the mixture to each side. Carefully roll up the tortilla into a tight little roll. Place the taquito, seam side down, on a lined baking sheet.
  6. Repeat for the remaining tortillas.
  7. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until golden brown. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with a side of chipotle cranberry apple salsa.
