    LifeIsGood's Note:

    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!

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    2. 2
      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).
    3. 3
      Drain 1/4 cup of oil from the cooked sausage.
    4. 4
      Set sausage aside to cool.
    5. 5
      Stir salsa and cheese into the skillet of sausage, mix well.
    6. 6
      Place a tortilla on a work surface and spoon 1/4 cup of the sausage mixture down the center.
    7. 7
      Fold tortilla in half, then roll up.
    8. 8
      Secure with toothpicks.
    9. 9
      Place on foil-lined cookie sheet.
    10. 10
      Repeat until all sausage/tortillas are gone.
    11. 11
      **You can prepare ahead until this point, and keep in the refrigerator until you're ready to bake**.
    12. 12
      Bake until filling is hot and tortilla is crisp and golden brown - about 18 minutes.
    13. 13
      Cut taquitos in half, crosswise.
    14. 14
      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.
