Not Costco's Taquitos

Don't get me wrong... Costco Taquitos are amazing, but I just felt determined one day to recreate them. You know, because I may be slightly-crazy and I love to recreate store-bought food (like Cosmic Brownies & Zebra Cakes).



TAQUITOS

yield: 20-24 taquitos | ready in 30 minutes


I N G R E D I E N T S

  • 20-24 small corn tortillas

  • 2 cups shredded or chopped chicken

  • ½ cup mexican cheese blend

  • ½ cup cotija cheese

  • ⅓ cup sour cream

  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro

  • 1-2 jalapeños, diced (optional)

  • ½ tsp garlic powder

  • ½ tsp cumin

  • ¼ tsp black pepper

  • ½ tsp chili powder

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ½ cup olive oil


M E T H O D

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

  2. Add chicken cheese, sour cream and jalapeño to a mixing bowl with spices and salt (basically all ingredients except tortillas). Mix until everything comes together.

  3. Take 1 tortilla and add 2 tbsp filling-- add filling in a straight line across so you can roll into a taquito shape. Roll into a taquito shape, place a toothpick in the center to ensure nothing falls out & set aside.

  4. Repeat until all of the filling is used, you should have enough filling to make 20-24 taquitos.

  5. Add ½ cup of olive oil to a baking sheet & space out taquitos.

  6. Space out taquitos on a baking sheet and bake for 11-14 minutes until golden brown.

  7. Serve immediately, topped with cilantro, sour cream, salsa, & a squeeze of lime.

** To freeze: bake for 9 minutes at 400 F. Cool completely, then place in a freezer safe container, and freeze for up to 3 months. Heat straight from the freezer starting at step 5. You can also coat/spray them with an oil of your choice-- just make sure they have a good coating for optimal crispiness!
