I'm looking for how to make chili crispitos. I ate them in school and I've looked all over the internet for the recipe. All I can find are school lunch menus. Please help me!

I love them too! I called the school that used to make them. Guess what! They are made by Tyson. I bought a box from the school. Delicious (05/22/2006)
My school offers chili crispitos through a website called www.marketday.com. Maybe there is one in your area. (05/22/2006)
These sound similar to the various products you can buy in the frozen section of the grocery, sometimes they are corn tortillas, sometimes flour. ChiChi's used to have something called a Mexican spring roll that is also similar, Perkins now serves something similar in their appetizers section. This is a recipe I found online under "taquito." Try it and adapt as necessary!

Serve with Mexican rice or with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole on the side, usually 2-3 taquitos per plate. See the Mexican rice recipe under Tijuana rice!
Preparation Time: Slow

Capt. Tom Smith,
I found this thanks to Jenni for the marketday site. They look like the ones I used to get in school, just like most of you remember :)
We used to buy ours through Market Day at school, now they only offer them at certain times which I think is really inconvenient. Just a suggestion though, we serve ours like this: Bake them, on each ones plate top with nacho cheese from Sam's Club with green chilies in it (you have to add the green chilies yourself), lettuce, tomato, onion, and sour cream, my family of 5 love them. We just wish we could get them more often. (08/19/2008)
