Instructions For Chicken Fajita Taquitos:

  1. Combine the chicken, bell pepper, onion, hot sauce, lime juice, and spices in a small bowl.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.
  3. Place the cheese slices on the silicone baking sheet, and bake for 5-7 minutes.
  4. When the edges have browned and the cheese is bubbly remove it from the oven. Allow them to cool about 1 minute, just so they are cool enough you can handle, but still very pliable. 
  5. Place the fajita mixture on the edge of one slice and tightly roll them up, seam side down. 

Note: You can use any variety of cheese of your choice. For these fajita taquitos, Pepper Jack slices are a great option if you prefer things a bit spicier. One thing to note is that the grease content of each cheese is different. Mozzarella slices seem to be the least greasy, while cheddar and Swiss are quite greasy when cooked.
