Mexican Taquitos got a healthy make over but taste just as good, if not even better!
Does your family or you love Mexican food? Maybe you've never heard of Taquitos before or attempted to make them, but I'm sure you've seen them.
They are basically a rolled up taco with some type of beef or chicken filling and then fried!
These are made with corn tortillas and filled with an adaption of my Turkey Enchilada recipe then baked until crispy. You won't even really notice they aren't fried because they still get nice and crisp!
Once you make the easy filling, you roll them and bake them and this recipe makes a ton so you can have plenty of left overs! The above pictures are using regular corn tortillas so they are more yellow, but I ran out and all I had was some white corn tortillas which are not as yellow. No difference in flavor, just color. Choose whichever ones you like.
This recipe makes 30 and they are little so a serving is 3. We had left overs the next night so I placed them back onto a baking sheet and reheated them at 350 for about 10 minutes. They came out just as good.
