Chicken & Bean Taquitos
- Cooking spray
- 1 lb. ground chicken thighs
- 2 Tbsp. chili powder
- 1 Tbsp. ground cumin
- 1 Tbsp. smoked paprika
- ¼ tsp. coarse salt
- ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
- 1 (15 oz.) can fat free refried beans, divided
- 12 - 6-inch flour or corn tortillas
- ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease rack fitted on a baking sheet with cooking spray. 1. Heat a large skillet to medium-high. Add ground chicken and saute 5-6 minutes until browned. Add chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, salt and pepper and saute another 30-60 seconds. Mix half the can of refried beans until incorporated. 1. Lay out tortillas on a flat workspace. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of remaining refried beans on half of the tortilla and spread around. Next, spoon 1-2 tablespoons of the chicken/refried bean mixture in a line down the middle of the tortilla. Then top with a sprinkle of shredded cheese. Roll up the tortilla to form the taquito, then place it on the greased rack, seam-side down. Repeat with the remaining ingredients until all of your taquitos are prepared. 1. Mist the tortillas with cooking spray. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the tortillas are crispy. 1. Remove and serve immediately with toppings of your choice.
