Lite Chicken Taquito's with Gaucamole Sauce

 Chicken Taquitos:  This Recipe
Is really easy if you have a Cuisinart Griddler.  All you do is take some cooked shredded chicken, sprinkle it with some garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste, set aside. Heat up your Grill to med to high heat, lay your corn tortillas on the grill they can be overlapping if need be, when there warm and pliable, sprinkle some of your favorite cheese on each tortilla, then some chicken, roll them up tight, seam side down, when your finished making them all, I make 3-6 at a time but you can make as many as you want that will fit on the grill, drizzle a little olive oil on the grill, then place all the taquitos down, and close the top so it cooks on the top and bottom, turn once after they start to get crunchy about 3-4 min, you want all sides crunchy.  When there done, remove them and sprinkle them with Parmesan cheese, and Serve them with Guacamole sauce.

*Note: if you want to take these up a notch in flavor, grill your chicken first in a skillet with some garlic and onions chopped, and a Little olive oil, cook on one side and press with a spatchla till crunchy on the bottom of the chicken, then remove the meat and then make your Taquito's as listed above. Enjoy! (Recipe below)

Guacamole Sauce

1 avocado
1 jalapeno
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp cilantro
To Make:
mix all ingredients together in your magic bullet or small blender or food processor
mix until creamy and totally blended, add more salt n pepper to taste if needed.
may want to use only half of the jalapeno, it may be to spicy. Serve with your Chicken Taquito's.

watch out because these babies are addicting, oh and the reason i call them lite is because they are not fried.
they are grilled, and if you do not have a Cuisinart grill, just heat up a skillet, and warm your tortillas in it, do as instructed above, and to cook them, lay a skillet on top of them that you greased with Pam and cook them that way.
