Taquitos are meats rolled in tortillas and fried. Typically, taquitos are dipped in guacamole and sprinkled with grated cheese like cheddar cheese before eating. Taquitos can be made using leftover meat from another meal or using meat that has been freshly cooked.
*Ingredients are per pound of meat, or to taste.
Saute chopped onions in vegetable oil in a saucepan until the onions are soft. Add the cooked meat, water or broth, flour, and spices and simmer for about 5 minutes until the meat mixture is thick and hot, stirring occasionally.
While the meat and spices are simmering, warm the tortillas in the microwave. Pour about an inch of vegetable oil into a heavy skillet and heat until the oil sizzles when spattered with water. Pour a couple tablespoons of the meat mixture down the center of each tortilla and roll the tortilla closed. Use toothpicks to keep the tortillas from unraveling.
Fry the taquitos in the hot oil until the taquitos are a golden brown. You may have to adjust the heat so that the taquitos cook to your desired degree of crispness. Serve hot with guacamole and shredded cheese.
