Crockpot Salsa Chicken Taquitos

Happy Saturday! The girls and I took a little trip to the Farmer’s Market this morning and got a few treats; blueberries, squash, tomatoes, honey, apple butter, purple potatoes, and some pork (kielbasa, pork butt, and bacon)! I got my delicious iced coffee and the girls got to pet a lot of really cute dogs. I’m glad the weather held out for us; more rain is in the forecast for today =(  Right now the girls are taking all their books and making dominoes out of them all over the house.

Yesterday I had defrosted some chicken thighs for dinner and was trying to think of a way to make them without having to go to the store. I found a can of enchilada sauce, jar of salsa, beans, and canned green chilies. So I came up with this crockpot shredded chicken recipe. Super easy and very flavorful!

Crockpot Salsa Chicken

Ingredients

4 chicken thighs- I had bone-in, which adds a lot of flavor.
1 large can of enchilada sauce
1 jar of your favorite salsa
1 small can of chopped green chilies
A good pinch of salt and pepper
If you like it spicy, add in some hot sauce or chili powder and/or chili flakes

Directions- Literally dump and stir. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.

You can use it for pretty much anything- tacos, enchiladas, burritos, nachos, etc. I rolled it up with some beans and cheese and made them in to taquitos.  I baked them in a 425 oven for about 15 minutes until the edges were crispy. Typically, taquitos are made with small corn tortillas and fried, but I only had medium sized flour tortillas, so I made that work. Plus, these baked ones are healthier and had all the same wonderful flavors! I served it with a side of Mexican rice and black beans.
