Beef Taquitos (OAMC)

Print PrintShare with Friends


I don't know about you guys but I cheat sometimes and buy taquitos from the freezer section of the grocery. I knew there had to be a way to make me feel less guilty so thus became the taquito recipe. I think you could do this with chicken also, but have yet to do it yet.
