Preparation

Crockpot Mexican Chicken

Grease crockpot with cooking spray. Set aside.

Pour half of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared crockpot.

Place chicken breasts into crockpot.

Pour remaining sauce over chicken breasts.

Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours.

Shred cooked chicken with two forks and set aside.

Taquitos

Heat about 1 inch of oil in a deep straight edged sauté pan to 350 degrees F.

Lay one tortilla onto a clean work surface.

Fill with 1 tablespoon shredded cheese and 2 tablespoons shredded chicken.

Roll to form the taquito, starting at the filled side. See video for visuals.

Use two toothpicks to secure the taquito along the seam.

Repeat with remaining taquitos.

Fry 4 taquitos at a time until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes.

Remove from oil and place on a paper towel to drain the oil.

Repeat with remaining taquitos.
