CR1 or K1

Greetings. New account because I do not wish to share such personal information on my main account.

My SO is Mexican and we have been in a long distance relationship for 4 years. We have known each other for about 5 years, almost 6.

Just 2 weeks ago I came back from Mexico in my first visit, everything went great and we think we are compatible enough to take our relationship one step further.

I'm 18 years old, currently working for amazon earning well above 125% of the poverty line. We have plans to get married and I even got her a ring.

It sounds like I'm young to make this decision, but I feel like we have been together for long enough to make it worth it. Now that we made that decision, as I'm researching for our options to be together, I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the bureaucracy that we have to go through for this.

I'm a US Citizen, and we want her to come here as fast as possible (for personal reasons), but we aren't quite sure if we want to go through a K1 process or CR1. We feel that CR1 is a lot simpler but I don't know how to get married to her in Mexico.

What is our best option? Should we try to marry in Mexico or should we try to get a K1 visa?
