Do ya'll like Mexican fare? It is my favorite kind of food these days, and it's not just because of the delicious margaritas (they sure do help though). I can't seem to get enough of guacamole - I'm addicted. I make it, eat it, crave it...and the cycle starts all over again. Enchiladas, tacos, fajitas etc. are dinner staples around these parts.
These taquitos were a little accidental, to be honest. I intended on making enchiladas, but I ran out of ingredients so at the last minute I made a few changes and called them taquitos instead. It was a delicious accident. They are sweet, tangy and creamy on the inside, and crispy and cheesy on the outside. And unlike normal taquitos, these guys aren't fried. Much healthier. Perfect.
