DIRECTIONS

  • TO MAKE TAQUITOS:
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Season the shredded chicken with cumin, oregano, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Stir in the chilies and cilantro or parsley. Pour about 1 inch of oil into a skillet and heat over medium heat until warm, not hot. Dip the tortillas in the oil just to soften. Do not brown. Roll up a couple forkfuls of chicken mixture in each tortilla and place them in a baking dish. Bake for 12 minutes.
  • TO MAKE DIPPING SAUCE:
  • Heat a saucepot over medium heat and add olive oil, red onion; cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 2 more minutes. Season with the sugar, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, salt and pepper, and stir in the fire-roasted tomatoes. Reduce the heat to low and simmer.
  • TO MAKE BURRITOS:
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the pork, breaking up into little pieces, and cook for 2 minutes to brown. Then add the zucchini, garlic, chipotle in adobo, and salt. Cook for 7-8 minutes longer.
  • Heat the last tablespoon of olive in a small nonstick skillet. Add the black beans and mash with a fork. Season the beans with salt and pepper, and fry until crisp at the edges, 3-4 minutes.
  • Soften the flour tortillas in a microwave or hot oven very briefly; do not let cook. On each tortilla, place a little of the black bean mixture, cheese, pork and lettuce. Tuck in the sides, then wrap and roll the tortilla.
  • Arrange taquitos and burritos on individual serving plates; pass the dipping sauce at the table or put into small condiment dishes for each person.
