Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Chicken Taquitos

My daughter sent me this recipe after she’d made it and watched her family devour them. It’s always so nice to find a new recipe that your kids will eat because let’s face...some kids are just picky eaters. But I can see why they loved them so much. Super good and even leftover they’re great after they are heated in the oven for a little while. We’ll be making these again!
Chicken Taquitos
24 corn tortillas
Oil for frying
3 chicken breasts ~ cooked and shredded
1/2 cup salsa
1/3 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
6 ounces cream cheese ~ room temperature
1 1/2 cups baby spinach ~ chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Add enough oil to a large skillet to come up almost half way. heat over medium heat.
In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, salsa, and sour cream.
Add the chopped spinach, grated cheese along with some salt and pepper then add the shredded chicken and stir.
Divide mixture between the corn tortillas.
Roll tortillas then place taquitos into the hot oil, seam side down and fry until golden brown on both sides.
Drain on paper towels and keep in a warm oven until all taquitos are cooked.
Serve with extra salsa and sour cream.
