      These were very good! Kind of like a chimichanga but not so big. They weren't too difficult to make either. I had to use the toothpicks, that frying part is a little tricky.

      Delicious! And easier than it sounds. I used beef and they were yummy! Here in San Diego, we call these taquitos or rolled tacos. Thanks for teaching me how to make them at home!

      These were yummy. A bit on the bland side for my spice-loving family. But I loved the thought of the tomatoes, garlic and onion. Next time, I'll add some cumin or chili powder to kick it up a bit.
