Did you ever have a recipe you resisted making because you thought it didn’t make sense? Maybe had an ingredient you didn’t care for? That was this dish for me. I couldn’t understand why you would make most of the meal in the slow cooker and then still have to roll and bake the taquitos before serving them. It sounded so difficult. It’s not. It was great to have dinner 75% done when we got home. Make the rolling the taquitos a family project and it goes VERY quickly.
I love when my family asks me to make these again before the meal is even done. The toughest part of this meal is the rolling of the taquitos. We discovered that if we soften the tortillas with a bit of cheese on them in the frying pan (let the cheese melt) then add the chicken with a bit more cheese on top and roll the tortillas tend not to split or crumble. We used two small skillets to make the rolling go faster too.
We served this with a hearty side salad to complete the meal.
