  • 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup original flavor bbq sauce
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 16 taco-sized soft tortillas (corn or flour)
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups shredded mexican-style or mozzarella cheese
  • optional: ranch dressing for dipping
  • Pineapple

  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Instructions

  • In a small bowl whisk together bbq sauce, garlic powder, pineapple juice, and liquid smoke until smooth.
  • Place chicken breasts in the bottom of your crockpot. Pour bbq sauce mixture over chicken. Cover and cook on high 3 hours or low 6 hours (if using frozen chicken breasts, you may need to increase the time by an hour or so)
  • Combine all salsa ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  • About 20-30 minutes before serving, shred chicken in the crockpot (I use two forks to shred) and stir the shredded chicken so it soaks up any remaining juices in the pot.
  • Preheat oven to broil and grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Lay tortillas out on a flat surface. Sprinkle about 2-3 tablespoons of shredded cheese in line down the middle of each tortilla. Top cheese with about 3-4 tablespoons shredded chicken. Tightly roll up tortillas and place them on prepared baking sheet 1 inch apart.
  • Spray rolled taquitos heavily with cooking spray. Cook in the oven (on high broil) for 5-8 minutes or until cheese is melty and tortillas are crisp (if you’re worried about them burning you can broil them on low for a little longer, 10-15 minutes).┬áServe warm with pineapple salsa and ranch if desired.
