chicken taquitos and taquito crock pot chicken

this recipe is great to throw in the crock pot and have ready for a busy day or evening. it's an easy dump before church. the unexpected secret ingredient- worcestershire sauce- (which my dad forced me to learn to pronounce as a child) gives a great flavor.

chicken taquitos

12 corn tortillas
1 recipe taquito crock pot chicken
shredded cheese
1 recipe blender guacamole

put 1 heaping Tablespoon taquito chicken in the middle of a corn tortilla. top with a heaping Tablespoon shredded cheese. cook on a hot griddle spread with a layer of oil or butter. cook tortillas opened flat until softened, then fold in half like a taco. brown both sides. keep warm in a tortilla keeper. (norpro makes a great big one. i love it for pancakes, tacos, tortillas...) serve with guacamole, salsa and sour cream.

variation: put 1 heaping Tablespoon taquito chicken in the end of a corn tortilla and roll up as tight as you can. secure with a toothpick. fry in hot oil a couple of minutes on both sides until golden brown. top immediately with shredded cheese. serve with shredded lettuce and guacamole.
