Preparation

Heat oil in deep-fryer to 350º F.

In a large bowl, combine shredded chicken, cheese, salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, garlic and onion.

Toss to mix together.

Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture onto the lower third of a tortilla.

Roll the tortilla as tightly as possible.

Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Fry tortillas 4 or 5 at a time, do not over crowd.

Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown.

Once the tortillas float, fry for an additional minute.

Tortillas should be crisp.

Drain on paper towels.

Place a handful of shredded lettuce on each plate.

Divide taquitos between plates and serve with a dollop of salsa, sour cream and guacamole.
