Baked Chicken Taquitos

Baked Chicken Taquitos from OrWhateverYouDo.com

Sometimes you just want something quick, and easy, and that everyone will eat. That is what this was for me. I set the crock pot up in the morning with the ingredients for the chicken, let it cook on low all day, came home and rolled these up and 30 minutes later I had a pan full of taquitos that weren’t going to expand our waistline too much, for once, and that even my kids really, really enjoyed.

This particular chicken recipe is great for any kind of Mexican meal. Taquitos, enchiladas, regular old tacos, even taco salad.

Start by placing 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts into your crock pot with 1 cup of salsa, 1 small can of green chiles, your seasonings, and 1-15 oz can of fire roasted tomatoes. Cook on low for 4-5 hours, or until the chicken is fully cooked. Shred the chicken with two forks, or by tossing it into your stand mixer with the beaters attached and turning on low for a minute or two. After it is shredded, place back into the slow cooker.
