Taquitos by Carlos - Recipe

Carlos makes these when special guests and family visit and they are gone in no time. It's a great appetizer, especially when hot from the pan and dipped in his fresh salsa! (see Salsa by Carlos)

Taquitos by Carlos Recipe
  • Mix chicken bouillon with chicken.
  • Place approximately 1/4 cup of chicken towards 1 end of a tortilla.
  • Role the tortilla from the meat side as tightly as possible and use a toothpick to "stitch" the tortilla to itself and hold it together.
  • Repeat until all chicken is gone.
  • In a large skillet, place enough oil in pan to cover 1/2 of taquito laying horizontally.
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat.
  • Place taquitos in hot oil and fry until medium brown and tortilla is crispy.
  • Flip them over to brown other side.
  • Have a platter ready with paper towel for oil absorption.
  • Remove taquitos from oil and hold over pan to drain oil.
  • Place taquitos on platter and remove toothpicks before serving.
