Serve with my red enchilada sauce, taco sauce, guacamole and sour cream or whatever else you can think of. These make a quick and satisfying lunch or dinner and are great for game day or a snack.
Don’t buy these in the store these taquitos are so much better, you can use your choice of cheese and fillings. Like tacos, only neater to eat, taquitos have plenty of kid appeal.
