Taqitos

These taquitos won't win any glamor shot awards, but they sure were tasty!  I made them along with a bunch of other appetizers for New Year's Eve, but I ddn't warm up the tortilas enough before I rolled them, thus the cracked sides, BUT instead of waiting to share the recipe, I thought I'd put it here, and net time I make some improvements to the 'look' I'll repost, but the taste was on point! 
This was a 2nd place 'speedy' recipe that was printed in this years State of Texas cookbook.
State Fair Chicken Taquitos
Ingredients:  2 c. shredded cooked chicken, 1 (1 oz) pkg taco seasoning mix, 2 c. shreddd cheddar cheese, 1 (10 oz) an Ro-Tel tomatoes (drained), 12+ corn tortillas, salsa for dipped (I also had sour cream and cheese sauce)
Instructions:
1.  Mix the chicken, taco mix, cheese, and Ro-Tel.  
2.  Warm tortials in the microwave 20 seconds at a time until they are soft and pliable (you can also do this on a skillet with vegetable spray). 
3.  Place 2 T of chicken mix on each tortila, roll tightly.  Secure with tooth pick, if necessary  
4.  Place on baking sheet, seam side down; bake at 375 10-12 minutes. Serve with salsa for dipping.
