  • 3 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup salsa verde

  • Place chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker, season with salt and pepper. 
  • In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese with the salsa, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, cayenne, onion powder, garlic, cilantro, and scallions. Pour over the chicken in the slow cooker.

  • While the taquitos are baking, you can mix your salsa verde and ranch dressing together, and serve alongside the taquitos.
