Mini Chicken, Bacon, Cream Cheese Taquitos

1/3 of a 16-ounce package bacon (about 6 slices), chopped
1/2 of an 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 cans (12.5 ounces each) Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained (or leftover cooked chicken)
8 flour tortillas (10-inch)
Vegetable oil
1.Cook the bacon in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove the bacon from the skillet and drain on paper towels.
2.Stir the bacon, cream cheese and chicken in a medium bowl.
3.Cut each tortilla into 3 (3-inch) circles using a round cutter. Spoon about 2 teaspoons chicken mixture in the center of each (one) tortilla round. Roll the tortillas around the filling and secure with toothpicks.
4.Pour the oil into a heavy 4-quart saucepan to a depth of 3 inches. Heat the oil to 350°F.
5.Add the taquitos to the saucepan in batches and cook until well browned on all sides. Remove the taquitos from the saucepan and let drain on paper towels. Let cool for 5 minutes. Remove the toothpicks before serving.
*This recipe is one that I had pinned and ACTUALLY made it!! I found it here on the "Mommy, I'm Hungry!" blog. It is a VERY EASY recipe to put together. You could have the kids help put them together and then an adult do the frying.
**We definitely will be making these again. I would suggest adding some seasoning to the chicken mixture. I added a little onion powder and some chives. My Girls loved them...especially dipped in some Ranch.
