I love tacos, but I also love taquitos. My favorite Mexican food growing up was basically a deep fried taco. Our family did a lot of restaurant dining when I was in my early teens and a popular favorite spot was Chi-Chi’s. Though the thought of eating chain restaurant Mexican food today sounds like an awful proposition, it was fantastic then since I had never experienced real Mexican food.
The recipe I went with is from a cookbook I have recommended before and will highly recommend again, Rosa’s New Mexican Table.
I also finally found some decent made that day tortillas from the Super A Foods Mexican grocery store chain here in California. Their corn tortillas are the perfect size and integrity for taquitos.
Recipe is from the cookbook: Rosa’s New Mexican Table.
