Mini Chicken Verde Tacquitos

One of my favorites!! 

I took my original recipe and made mini ones for a great party appetizer.

3 servings 
Each serving provides 1 lean; 3 condiments 

Cheese shells 4 mini shells per serving = 1/2 lean (take your 1/2 cup cheese and divide into 4 mini shells)
1/2 cup low moisture mozzarella cheese ( per serving)
Preheat oven to 350. Spray non stick spray on parchment paper that is on a baking sheet. Make 4 mini taco circles per serving and bake for approximately 10 minutes. Needs to start browning around the edges but not over cooked.

             Chicken filling ( 3 servings) 

6 oz. cooked shredded chicken breast

3 oz. shredded low fat mixed cheese

3 Tablespoons softened  light cream cheese

3 Tablespoons salsa verde 


While the shells are cooking shred your cooked chicken breast in a bowl and add your softened cream cheese, 3 tablespoons salsa verde and shredded mixed low fat cheese. Divide your chicken mixture into 3 equal amounts. Each amount gets divided among 4 mini shells. 
Divide your chicken mixture down the center of your shells and roll tightly. Important that this is done before the shells get hard. Serve with an additional 1 Tablespoon Salsa Verde per serving for dipping.
