|Here in Eastern New Mexico we love our Southwest food. Enchiladas with red sauce are my favorite, but taquitos are a close second.|
|H and I are having taquitos today for lunch....|
|I usually make a dozen at a time and put half of them in the freezer....they freeze great! To reheat them, put them on a baking sheet and pop them in the oven at about 400 for about 5 minutes or til hot.|
Dip about 1 dozen tortillas in hot grease, one at a time, for about 1/2 minute each. Drain on paper towels. Should be soft.Season 2 pounds hamburger meat and spread (thin) on about 3/4 of the tortilla. Roll tight and put aside until all are rolled. Fry in deep fat until the meat is done. About 2 minutes. Drain on cookie sheet on paper towels.
I season my hamburger meat with garlic salt and and and 3 T of Rotel. It helps to run a toothpick thru your Taquito to hold it together while frying. You can dip your taquito in salsa, nacho cheese, or guacamole.
