I could not believe how easy this was! I used left over pot roast amd in addition to the cumin, I used chili powder, oregano and about 2 oz diced green chiles - left out the black and cayanne pepper. I heated my tortillas over the stove fire and didn't have any toothpicks, so I just carefylly laid them in about 1/2 inch of hot veg oil, with the seam side down and it worked perfectly. Just started off making them for myself, but as soon as DH and DD got a taste, I had to go back and make more! I never realized how easy taquitos were to make! I was going to use the meat for tonight's dinner, but it's now almost gone :-) Thanks for such a great idea!

Wonderful and crispy. Great way to use up left over brisket. My first attempt did not work...tortillas cracked and broke. I used the method I use for enchiladas and dipped the tortillas in hot oil to make them limp. This was much more successful! I love these out and have never been brave enough to try at home. Thank you Cynna for posting an awesome recipe.
