Little Miss Momma: Taquitos Recipe

Taquitos Recipe

Homemade Taquitos Recipe
Never dry, always crunchy, with a touch of salt.
Seriously better than any taquitos you'll order at a restaurant.
Mmmmm, Mmmmm good.


Since as far back as I can remember, this has been one of my all-time favorite comfort meals. When my Momma makes her yummy taquitos, I turn into a teenage boy--as in I eat about a dozen. It's not pretty, but it sure feels good.
My grandma {Dad's Mom} taught my Mom how to make these way back when my parents were newly weds. 

  
Ingredients:
Vegetable Oil
Canned Roast Beef
Corn Tortillas
Salt


First, open the roast beef and break apart the clumps with a fork until their are no large pieces.

Next, microwave about 10 tortillas at a time until soft enough to roll without breaking. Be sure to wrap them in paper towels or cover them with paper plates before you microwave so they don't get rubbery.


Spread a heaping tablespoon worth of meat onto the edge of a tortilla.

Tightly roll up the tortilla and place in a cookie sheet seam side down.
Continue this step will all your tortillas {make a lot, trust me}.


Once all the taquitos are prepped, you are ready to start frying them.
Pour enough vegetable oil in the pan to cover the bottom.
Turn the burner onto medium/high heat and wait for the oil to get hot.
  

Use tongs to place the taquitos seam side down in the pan.




Taquitos should take approximately 5 minutes to brown on one side (takes longer for a larger pan). Once brown on one side, flip with the tongs.
Sprinkle salt to taste while they finish cooking.


Remove the taquitos from the pan and place on a paper towel lined plate to remove excess grease. And of course, top with cheese.

Yum-these are so easy too. I always get nervous when frying things (bacon grease in the eye a few years ago) but I might buck up the courage to try these...

I really love Chix, does anyone have suggestions for what to use to make chicken taquitos?

I am so sorry about the vanishing words for a lot of you. I have no idea why this happens but I am trying to get answers. The good news, I will be switched over to WordPress very soon, and then we shouldn't have any more problems.

thanks for letting me know girls :)
does anyone have answers to why this happens?

xoxo,

Thanks for posting this; I am always looking for quick & easy dinner ideas... this is a dinner item, right? Not just a snack? My family will eat the beef, but I am a vegetarian- does anyone know of a substitute filling (besides soy meat)? Like chopped roasted veggies (if so, please post your recipe and how-to).

I was wondering if your beans are from a recipe, or from a can? They "look" better than your typical can of beans...

Also, just wanted to chime in that I am another reader whose words disappear as I scroll down- thought it was just me!

They do look good!!!

MMMMMMM, mmmmm! Hey Ashley- do you have an AMAZING recipe for refried beans??? If so, PLEASE share.

I've been trying to make them homemade for a while but they never taste like the ones I get from my favorite mexican restaurant.

thanks!
Jen

Wow! Think I'll try this with taco meat.

 
At June 8, 2011 at 10:37 AM , Blogger Andrea said...

YUM! Those look so good, I love Mexican food.

I'd love the recipe for those beans now too! :)

Those look delicious and will be on my dinner menu within the next few days! I like the tip on heating the tortillas, I hate using them bc they break so easily.
Randi - you can buy canned chicken (i get mine at Sams) that would work exactly like this, oh and it's better if you brown it up a bit in a pan instead of using it straight from the can.

looks so good! i'll have to try.

 
At June 8, 2011 at 2:18 PM , Blogger Kelly H said...

These sound excellent! I'm always looking for more mexican recipes. My hubby and I love it, but I usually just stick with tacos. I can definitely make these.
Thanks!! :)

Yummy! Definitely saving this one :)

I added it to my Sunday Social (favorites of the week) list that I post on my food blog!

Oh my gosh-I LOVE taquitos!! I would have made this recipe SO much more difficult than needed...canned roast beef! Of course!!

These are SO on the menu for next week!!! Now...I need a salsa recipe to rival my favorite taco shop....maybe I should search your blog or Pioneer Woman : ) Can't wait to make me about 50 of these...yeah...I get the teenage boy thing going around things like this too! <3

I had no idea you could buy canned roast beef! I hate thawing and cooking meat...because I'm lazy! BUT I could totally do this! Thanks for sharing!

i have always wanted to make taquitos. thanks for sharing!

Yum! I love taquitos. I make chicken taquitos filled with chicken, salsa, cream cheese, grated cheese, and corn. I do mine on a pampered chef stone in the oven, spritzed with cooking oil spray (like Pam)... a little lighter than frying, but still crispy and tasty!
taquitos and fajitas and quesadillas are my favourite foods. Yummmmmmmm.

I LOVE these. They are so good. I love your blog. I am so new to all this blogging stuff :) lol

hahahaha! I tried to make these and must have used too much oil b/c it caught on fire! We got really lucky that it didn't catch anything else on fire. There was a lot of smoke damage but it could have been much worse. hahaha

 
At July 16, 2011 at 9:10 PM , Blogger MJ said...

YUM! I totally learned something new - roast beef in a can??? Will definitely be making these in the near future. :)

These look yummy but that canned meat looks....scary. Is it really good?

Mrs. Ashley!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your recipes!! I'm in such a mood to make these now...mmm taquitos on the patio with a yummy drink and the occasional cool breeze in the summer heat!
