Chicken Fajita Taquito Rolls

Is it really Monday again? The weekends fly by so fast I swear. I love Mexican food. I just cant seem to ever get enough of it. I did not want to make a huge dinner one night so I came up with these. So easy to put together. I always like to have shredded chicken on hand. Sometimes I will freeze it and take it out when needed. When all else fail there is always the rotisserie chicken.  There is a similar version of these here. You can make these for your game day, Superbowl party whatever! 
2 bell peppers seeded and sliced
1 onion sliced thin
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 cups cooked, shredded chicken, a rotisserie chicken works well also
2 tablespoons fajita seasoning 
1 cup Mexican shredded blend cheese
20 (6-inch) flour tortillas, you may use less or more depending on how much you fill them
Non-stick cooking spray 

Optional toppings:
Pico de Gallo
Avocado Ranch Sauce

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat, saute peppers and onion until onion is clear.

Cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. 
Mix together chicken, fajita seasononing, peppers, onion and cheese. Mix well. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture into a flour tortilla and roll it up.

Place Taquito Roll Roll seam-side down on the baking sheet. Repeat until you are out of tortillas. Once finished, spray the tops of the taquitos with non-stick cooking spray or brush with olive oil.

Place pan in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until edges and tops are golden. Let cool for a couple of minutes. Serve with Sour Cream.
