We had these delicious taquitos for supper tonight, courtesy of our daughters. Taquitos are a Mexican dish consisting of rolled up tortillas with some sort of filling. They can be deep fried or crisped in a frying pan with a little oil as these were. They can be filled with shredded or ground meat, beans or potatoes and cheese. They are served with red sauce, green salsa and sour cream as desired.

Corn Tortillas, 6-8 inch diameter

Filling options: Refried beans with or without grated cheese
Cooked and seasoned shredded chicken, beef or pork
Mashed potato and cheese (can be mixed with meat)
Anything else you think of

Place some filling in the tortilla and roll up, securing edge with a toothpick
Fry in a hot skillet until crisp.

Red sauce- Crushed tomatoes (canned) , a little vinegar, oregano, salt
Hot green salsa and sour cream or any other topping or taco sauce/salsa your desire

Oh! I can't wait to make these myself! I love the store bought type, but I'd like to have more control over what goes in them! This recipe would be great for using up leftovers!
You're not helping with my diet! LOL!
