Servings 5 Servings


  • 1-2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 (18-20oz) bottle favorite BBQ Sauce (more or less depending on preferences)
  • 5 slices of bacon, cooked & diced
  • shredded cheese (cheddar)
  • 10 taco size flour tortillas


  • Place BBQ sauce & chicken in a small slow cooker. Cook on low for 4 hours. Remove chicken, shred with a fork & then add the BBQ sauce from the slow cooker. (*Optional: Brush chicken breasts with BBQ sauce & grill until no longer pink inside. Cut chicken into small chunks & toss with additional sauce. [OR] Boil chicken breasts for 15 minutes until no longer pink, shred & sauce.)
  • Add diced bacon & stir into the chicken mixture.
  • Divide the mixture among 10 tortillas & add a sprinkle of your favorite cheese (we used colby jack, but mozzarella would be great.) Tightly roll tortillas up.
  • Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray & place finished taquitos on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the tops of the taquitos.
  • Bake at 400*F for 15 minutes, turning once halfway through. Cook until crispy & heated in the centers. Serve while hot.
