My husband loved this dish. We often buy the frozen taquitos so when I saw I could make them myself I wanted to give it a try. These far surpassed the frozen variety. I used more than 1/2 cup cheese, sprinkling about 2 tbsp on each taquito. They browned up nicely. Mine did stick to the foil lined pan so next time I will be sure to spray it first.

I've made these a few times and they are amazing! Great taste, much better than store bought taquitos! I used 1lb of ground beef, so had to adjust the salsa and spices a bit. I've also tried these with corn and flour tortillas. The corn have a good taste, but completely fell apart when baked. I prefer the flour personally. Thanks for a great recipe!

I made many changes to this recipe and it came out wonderful! I use bison instead of beef. I also added cream cheese to the hot mixture and let it melt in, giving it a chimichanga taste. I put the filling in the fridge for 2 hours, which made it easier to roll up in the tortillas. I also broiled them for the last few minutes to get them crispy the whole length (with plenty of olive oil). We dipped them in sour cream and salsa with a side of guacamole. Excellent! I will be making more and freezing them!

These were easy and delicious! I made a couple of minor variations, adding some chopped green peppers and fresh tomatoes and a pinch of cumin. I also used half flour tortillas and half corn. The flour maintained their shape much better, but the corn "crunched up" better.

I just finished eating these. Fantastic! I used olive oil, and added a pinch of cumin, but the rest the same. They are mildly spicy, so add more chili powder if you like it hot. They came out nice and crispy, as if deep fried. I'm going to have one more now........

I made a batch of these and threw them in the freezer for growing teenage boy who eats more often than I care to cook. 60 seconds at 50% power, covered with a napkin heats them through without overcooking. They are soooo much better than store bought frozen taquitos. I store them in a plastic pitcher with a lid. They fit perfectly.

My 12 year old loves the taquitos you buy in the store. When I made these he said these are so much better. I made as written. Thanks for the recipe

Yum, Yum, Yum! These are great! I only had a couple tortilla shells so mine were stuffed but still really good. My only alterations were whole wheat tortillas, chipotle chili powder and I added a bit of cumin. I doubled the garlic because we love garlic.
