Fall Entertaining

Southern Socials


Taquitos are the corn tortilla cousin of the flauta— crispy, fried tacos that may be served with an array of salsas & toppings including Charred Salsa Verde & Salsa Roja, sour cream, diced tomatoes, chopped onion, cilantro & minced hot peppers. For the best results, be certain to use a fresh batch of corn tortillas that have not been refrigerated. Position the cheese in the center, then the chicken on the sides before rolling. This will keep the cheese from releasing into the oil during the frying process. If a bit of cheese does release, simply remove with a slotted spoon in between batches. Taquitos are a delicious item that is perfect to serve for weeknight meals or when entertaining is in order. Accompany with Arroz Roja & Traditional Refried Pinto Beans to complete the menu.

Grilled Chicken Taquitos

makes 4 servings

1/2 cup thinly sliced Salt & Pepper Grilled Chicken
  1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese
8 {5-inch} corn tortillas
Vegetable oil
Sour cream
Salsa Roja
Garnish: Chopped fresh cilantro
Traditional Refried Pinto Beans

Divide the chicken & the cheeses evenly between the corn tortillas positioning the filing ingredients on the bottom third portion. Roll up the tortillas jelly roll fashion. Secure with a wooden pick. 

Heat 1 1/2-inches oil in a Dutch oven to 350 degrees. Attach a thermometer to the side of the pot in order to maintain the temperature. Cook the filled & secured corn tortillas, in batches, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, turning often, until golden brown. Remove from the oil using long handled tongs & place over paper towels. Remove the wooden pick from each taquito & divide between plates. Serve with sour cream & Salsa Roja. Garnish, if desired. Accompany with Traditional Refried Pinto Beans.
