    Vanessa7's Note:

    I haven't tried this myself but it actually looks so good and easy to make! Requeson is a loose, ricotta-like cheese used to make cheese spreads in several Latin American countries and in Brazil. This variety is most often sold in the markets wrapped in fresh corn husks. A mild, unsalty ricotta can be substituted for requesón. (from Although I'm not from Mexico, I live here and I got this magazine that has Mexican recipes. I totally LOVE mexican food! I hope they are least they look promising...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup requeson cheese (any soft spreadable white cheese, since requeson is not available in many places) or 1 cup unsalted ricotta cheese (any soft spreadable white cheese, since requeson is not available in many places) or 1 cup soft cream cheese (any soft spreadable white cheese, since requeson is not available in many places)
    • 3 teaspoons serrano chilies, minced
    • 3 teaspoons epazote, finely cut (you can substitute it with cilantro or parsley)
    • 1 dash salt
    • 1 dash pepper
    • 12 flour tortillas
    • 4 tablespoons canola oil


    1. 1
      In a bowl, mix the cheese with the chiles, epazote, salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Lightly heat the tortillas on a skillet (comal) to soften them up and so that they are easy to handle.
    3. 3
      Near the edge of each tortilla, place a bit of the cheese mixture. Be careful that it does not stick out so it doesn't burn while frying it.
    4. 4
      Roll each tortilla forming "taquitos" or "flautas" and hold with toothpicks (to secure it and avoiding it to open while frying).
    5. 5
      Heat the oil on a skillet and fry 3 tacos at the time and turn them to get an even golden color.
    6. 6
      When you have fried all taquitos, place them over a papel towel to absorb excess oil.
    7. 7
      Cut the "taquitos" in 2 or 3 parts and serve them warm.
