Creamy Chicken Taquitos (Healthy Version!)

My family love love loves the baked creamy chicken taquitos recipe from Our Best Bites.  They will devour the entire pan in about 10 seconds.  I am trying to incorporate more whole grains and less fats in our diets, so I decided to doctor these babies up a little.  I left out the cheese (who needs it!), replaced the cream cheese with non-fat greek yogurt and switched the corn tortillas for wheat ones. The result?  Easy, fast and DELICIOUS!
Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos Recipe  by Our Best Bites (altered a bit by me) 1/3 cup non-fat greek yogurt 1/4 C green salsa (I used Herdez in a can) 1T fresh lime juice 1/2 t cumin 1 t chili powder 1/2 t onion powder 1/4 t granulated garlic, or garlic powder 2 T sliced green onions 2 C shredded cooked chicken (I cooked 3 chicken breasts in the crock pot all day and then shredded them) Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas (12-16) Kosher salt cooking spray Preheat oven to 425 F
 Mix the first 9 ingredients into a bowl.
Place 2 - 3T of chicken mixture onto bottom third of tortilla, then roll them up tightly.
 Place on a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil.  Spray all the taquitos with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.  (OK, you caught me.  I didn't have any kosher salt so I used regular.)
Bake at 425 F for 15 - 20 minutes and they are a nice golden brown color.
We like them served with guacamole and salsa
I have to be honest here.  I was a little nervous to try the whole wheat tortillas on my family.  My older two don't really care for anything that resembles healthy or has the word whole wheat in it.  And YES, they were a little wheaty.  The corn tortillas (and even the white flour tortillas) are probably a little tastier in my opinion.  But these were more filling and the kids said they were still really really delicious!  I promise!
Give them a try and tell me if your family loves them as much as mine!
