Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken Taquitos

We love an easy dinner recipe – especially when you can make it in the slow cooker! These cheesy chicken taquitos are a healthier homemade version than store bought or restaurant made (they’re baked, not fried!) – and they’re perfect for little hands who refuse to eat anything unless they can dip it in something! 😉

    • Hi Jenn. I would do all the steps in the recipe, but when it says to lay them seam side down on a baking sheet is when you would put them in your freezer container. Then when you are ready, thaw in the fridge and heat as directed on the recipe instructions. Hope this helps!
