Slow Cooker Jalapeno Popper Taquitos


  • 8 eaches skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced jalapeno peppers with juice
  • ¼ cup green enchilada sauce
  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 16 (6 inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded pepperjack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Combine chicken thighs, cream cheese, jalapeno peppers with juice, green enchilada sauce, salt, and black pepper together in a slow cooker.


  • Step 2

    Cook on High for 3 to 4 hours. Shred chicken with 2 forks and stir with sauce in the slow cooker to combine.

  • Step 3

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Step 4

    Spread tortillas out on a flat work surface and sprinkle pepperjack cheese evenly in the center of each tortilla. Spread about 2 tablespoons of chicken mixture over cheese on each tortilla. Tightly roll each tortilla and place, seam-side down, on the prepared baking sheet. Brush top and sides of each rolled tortilla with vegetable oil.

  • Step 5

    Bake in the preheated oven until cheese melts, and tortillas start to brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven’s broiler. Cook taquitos under the broiler until crisped, 2 to 3 minutes more.
