Make a meal with Frozen Taquitos

Don't have the time to cook home made meals everyday?

Here's a quick one for you with frozen Taquito's.

I'm not talking about eating them plain or dipped in sauce.

Spruce them up. I'm going to show you just how to do that.

Make a meal for the whole family with these little frozen flour rolled Yum-Yums. Kids especially love them.

Pour Sauce over the Taquitos

Plain frozen Taquitos spruced up a bit!

Taquitos are chicken or beef filled in a flour tortilla shell then rolled up. They taste best when fried. You can bake them in the oven if you prefer not to fry them. Most of the time they are eaten as a snack dunked in salsa or cheese sauce. I was being creative one day and really didn't feel like cooking. I looked in the freezer to decide what would be easy to fix and pulled out a bag of "Taquitos". This is what I did with them.


Meal for Two people. Each person might eat up to 4 Taquitos.

  • 6-8 Taquitos, Frozen
  • 3 tablespoon Cheese Sauce, any/your favorite
  • 3 tablespoon Quacamole sauce, any/your favorite
  • 1 large tomatoe, chopped/cubed
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 head lettuce, shredded
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Instructions

  1. In canola, peanut or vegetable oil, fry the Taquitos until golden brown for a couple of minutes. If you prefer baking them: Preheat the oven to 400F. Bake taquitos on a non-stick baking sheet for 10-15 minutes. When done put about 3-4 of them on a plate.
  2. In layers top the taquitos accordingly : Spread the warm sauce over the taquitos. Warm in a pot or microwave: Enchilada, guacamole and Salsa Conqueso cheese till smooth. You can use any brand or flavor you like. This is just what I used at the time. Mixing flavors together also gives it that extra BANG!
  3. Next, sprinkle chopped onions, tomatoes, salsa , shredded cheese.
  4. Top it off with "Lot's" of shredded lettuce. Tip: you can also add sour cream, jalapenos, green onions what ever you feel like at the time.

Taquitos Toppings

Lettuce adds that crunchy, fresh burst of flavor and hides all the other ingredients under it. While the sauce just gooshes out from under it.

Extra Tips

Left over chili would make a nice sauce topping.
