    Does anyone have a favorite recipe for chicken or beef (or pork?) taquitos that you can share? I want to make a bunch and freeze them for DH to 'heat and eat' for lunch...

    I have used this recipe and my family really liked it, although I started out with leftover meat. Recipe courtesy of Tish over at food.com The only problem I had was my corn tortillas were not as fresh as they should have been and some of them tore, I ended up using toothpicks to keep them rolled up.



    5 lbs roast
    onion soup mix (optional)
    2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
    garlic powder
    onion powder (optional)
    1 1/2 cups picante sauce or 1 1/2 cups salsa or 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
    1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
    48 corn tortillas
    cheese sauce (optional)
    salsa (optional)
    sour cream (optional)
    guacamole (optional)

    My all time favorite Taquitos Recipe. Enjoy [​IMG]

    Crisp Rolled Chicken Taquitos Recipe


    1 1/4 pound skinless boneless chicken breasts
    1 1/2 cup canned fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
    8 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 medium white onion, finely chopped
    2 tablespoons fresh block cream cheese
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (mexican variety preferred), crumbled
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
    12 corn tortillas (6- to 7-inch size)


    Place chicken breasts and broth in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer, 12 to 15 minutes, or until the chicken is white throughout but still moist. Set the chicken aside in the broth until cool enough to handle. With your fingers, shred the chicken into thin strips and reserve in a bowl.

    In a medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat and cook the onions and oregano, stirring, about 2 minutes or until onions are limp. Put the onions in the bowl with the shredded chicken. Mix in the cream cheese, salt, and pepper. Reserve.

    In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium high heat and, using tongs, soften tortillas 1 at a time by dipping in hot oil about 2 seconds on each side or until very limp. Drain tortillas between layers of paper towels. Stack and keep covered with clean kitchen towel.

    To fill, place 1 soft tortilla on a plate, spoon about 2 tablespoons chicken mixture in a line, across lower third of tortilla surface and roll up tightly. Secure with toothpick and lay seam side down on another plate.

    Repeat with remaining tortillas. Cover with plastic wrap to keep from drying out. At this point, taquitos can be held, covered and refrigerated, up to 6 hours before frying.

    In a medium skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil on medium high, and fry the taquitos 2 at a time, seam side down, until lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all are cooked.

    With a sharp knife, cut each taquitos in half, arrange on a plate, and serve hot.
