Chipotle Chicken Taquitos

I made these for our little Wrestlemania party ! Very tasty!

32 thin corn tortillas(homemade is best!)
3 smallish chicken breasts
2 cubes chipotle bullion
2 TB butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk
oregano, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder ,seasoning salt, pepper
(to taste)

Boil your chicken breasts with water and the 2 bullion cubes.
Drain and cool and shred and place in a bowl.

In a sauce pan melt butter over medium heat, add in flour stirring until crumbly.
Add in chicken broth and milk and seasoning, heat and stir until thickened.
Remove from heat and cool slightly

Add to the bowl of chicken and mix thoroughly....adding  1-2 tsp of chipotle powder to your taste preference.

Take one tortilla (if they are cooled, or store bought warm 10 at a time in the microwave and keep them under a towel as your work) and add 1 TB filling , spread it out lengthwise and roll tightly squeezing slightly to make the filling even.

Place seam side down in a dish.

Repeat with all the filling and tortillas.

Heat 1/2 inch oil in a pan to 360.

Add taquitos in batches depending on your pan size and fry for approx 90 seconds per side, until desired brownness, remembering that they will brown slightly more as the cool.....

Drain on paper towels and continue with the rest.

Serve with salsa, sour cream, guacamole or what ever you like!

These can be premade and re heated in a 425 degree oven for 7-8 minutes. Or they can be frozen and reheated @ 425 for 15-20
