A tried and true family favorite recipe. Slow cooker Chicken Taquitos are delicious. Easy and fast, your whole family will love it.
Sharing another of our tried and true family recipes today…Slow Cooker Chicken Taquitos. I love the flavor of these Taquitos. The first time I made them a couple of years ago, they were met with much scrutiny by the youngest. She was disappointed to find that they were not in fact her favorite Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos (which are also super delicious).
After some convincing, she took a tiny little nibble and was pleasantly surprised that she liked it…after a few more bites, she decided that she didn’t just like it…she LOVED it! Well, there you go…she’s a tough critic that one…and these passed with a very high endorsement on her part.
After dinner that night, she practiced saying the word “taquito” over and over again so she could tell her ballet carpool about her delicious dinner…haha!
