Cinco De Mayo: Homemade Taquitos

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!

Homemade Taquitos

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!

  1. Had to come check out your food blog, I love cooking, too. Not as much as you, but still, I'm working at it...
    Love that you use chorizo. The best I've found is at the blue "La Chaquita" in AF off State street, it's the most authentic by far!
