This is a fantastic recipe that you can prep ahead! I've served these taquitos, sliced in half, as appetizers. The chorizo gives them a nice zing. You may serve these with sour cream and/or guacamole on the side. This is a Sandra Lee recipe. Delish!
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a large skillet, saute the sausage over medium heat until browned - about 6 minutes (I like to break it apart into smaller pieces while it's cooking).
- Drain 1/4 cup of oil from the cooked sausage.
- Set sausage aside to cool.
- Stir salsa and cheese into the skillet of sausage, mix well.
- Place a tortilla on a work surface and spoon 1/4 cup of the sausage mixture down the center.
- Fold tortilla in half, then roll up.
- Secure with toothpicks.
- Place on foil-lined cookie sheet.
- Repeat until all sausage/tortillas are gone.
- **You can prepare ahead until this point, and keep in the refrigerator until you're ready to bake**.
- Bake until filling is hot and tortilla is crisp and golden brown - about 18 minutes.
- Cut taquitos in half, crosswise.
- Serve hot with your choice of condiments!
Delish. I used medium sized wheat tortillas, so mine were a bit "fatter" than a typical taquito however we were using them as a main dish so it was perfect. If you are using them as an appetizer, do use the larger tortillas. I thought it was going to be very spicy and it was simply mild Mexican flavors. Very good.
This was absolutly delicious. I flash froze mine. Then heated them up about 2 days later for a weekday meal. The ingredients only cost about $4.00 and great to keep in the freezer. My husband and I are going to add refried beans and make burritos with this recipe as well.
I used soy chorizo(vegetarian) and it turned out great! I topped with sour cream. Thanks! Made for Everyday is a Holiday game.
