Preparation

  1. In a sauce pan, over medium-high heat, combine all taquito filling ingredients. Mix well and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Wrap tortillas in a damp towel and microwave for 15-20 seconds.
  3. Place about 2 tablespoons of filling across the tortilla about ⅓ of the way up from the bottom of the tortilla, and roll the tortilla around the filling.
  4. Heat about ¼ inch (½ cm) of oil over medium-high heat. Carefully, place 3-4 taquitos in the oil, and cook for 3 minutes on each side. (Frying them seam side down first helps them stay closed during frying!)
  5. Remove from the pan and drain excess oil on the taquito on a paper towel.
  6. Place cooked taquitos on a bed of lettuce and garnish with crema, cilantro, cotija, and avocado.
  7. Enjoy!
