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! 😉
