Excellent recipe. Careful when you fry them, the grease pops a good bit.

This was a good recipe for taquitos and for a beginner i thought it was preaty easy. the taste was good, but the dish was overall kind of heavy.

Finally!!! I searched and searched for a recipe for beef taquitos and ta da!! Here it is! Well, istead of using cumin, I used a taco seasoning packet and I'm not really a fan of green chili's so I used enchilada sauce instead there. They turned out absolutely fantastic....More than likely I'll make this again.
