    Tarynne's Note:

    My mom's friend Marlene taught us how to make these when I was a kid. Taquitos have always been a favorite of mine and These are so easy to whip up.

    7. 7
      Fold tortilla over and roll to resemble a cigar.
    8. 8
      Fasten together with a toothpick(I found this makes it less likely to come undone when frying).

      I used some leftover shredded roast beef I had in the freezer, added some diced green chilies, a touch of garlic, chili powder and cumin and served as you suggested with guacamole. Wonderful and very easy recipe. Thank you Tarynne

      Kids that wouldn't touch dinner the night before ate it re-wrapped as a taquito. First time having "fried food" for the toddlers. Put broccoli, a little cheese, garlic salt, onion powder and left over chicken inside. Also used Tumaro's Law carb Multigrain 94% fat free tortillas. Thanks!
