If you’re feeling a little lazy and want an easy crockpot meal, you can do wrong with this recipe! I love Tex-mex (hands down my favorite type of food) so this week I wanted to try a spin on taquitos 😛 I love the Taquitos at Chevy’s, but ONE serving of the chicken taquitos is ~1000 calories and has 96g carbs 😮 trying lighter versions of your favorite foods at home is a great way to get the same - or an even better - flavor that won’t include all of the hidden calories and sugar 🤗

1/4 cup jalapeño slices

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder 

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 block light cream cheese

8 whole wheat carb balance tortillas


1. Add pork, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, and spices to crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 7-8 hours

2. When pork is done, shred with a fork and add cream cheese to pot. Stir well until mixed.
