Cinco de Mayo sort of snuck up on me this year. I love to go all out and have lots of fattening Mexican food to celebrate. This year we did it a little mild. I made homemade cheese and chorizo taquitos with guacamole, salsa, and queso dip. I once had a recipe for homemade taquitos, but I don't kn ow what happened to it, so I sort of did it by memory and they turned out great!
About 1 lb of chorizo, ground beef, or chicken
6 flour tortillas
cheese; cheddar or pepper jack
Cook your meat. Then, take a flour tortilla (I used the bake your own from costco, and did not bake them before and they turned out perfect) and put a spoonful of meat, then a spoonful of cheese in the middle. Roll it up tight and secure with toothpicks on either side. fry in a deep fat fryer at 375 for about 5 minutes. You may have to flip them half way through. Let drain on a paper towel, and remove toothpicks before eating. Dip it in sour cream, guacamole, queso dip or salsa!
