Baked Rolled Tacos

This recipe is a little bit of work but you get great authentic restaurant-quality taquitos. So much better than the ones you can buy frozen. I’ve made this twice now and do not stray at all from the recipe. It’s perfect as written.

I am very glad I found this recipe. I made it exactly without changing a thing and they turned out perfect. Very easy to make. I am going to try chicken next time and make a bunch for the freezer. Excellent!

Definitely making these again. I found tortillas that were 1/2 corn and 1/2 flour so they were pretty easy to roll and stayed together nicely. Next time I will add more cheese to them because my family loves cheese. Very delicious with salsa and a side of refried beans.
