1/1 Photo of Bean & Cheese Taquitos w/ Guacamole
I love taquitos, but it can be hard to find vegetarian-friendly versions (especially in restaurants). This easy recipe can be adapted for vegan diets as well.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
- 1 1/2 tablespoons TABASCO® brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
- 24 small corn tortillas (the thin ones work best if you can find them)
- 1 cup peanut oil or 1 cup corn oil or 1 cup vegetable oil, for frying
- 1Make guacamole first by combining all ingredients except sour cream.
- 2Mash and stir until only small lumps of avocado remain.
- 3Garnish with sour cream piled in the center and refrigerate until ready to use.
- 4Combine beans, Tabasco, cumin, corriander, salt and cheese stirring well.
- 5Microwave tortillas between 2 paper towels, 3 at a time on high for 30 seconds.
- 6Work with one tortilla at a time, keeping the others covered in paper towels so they stay warm and moist.
- 7Place 1 tablespoon of filling at the center edge of tortilla closest to you and roll tightly away from you like skinny cigar.
- 8Keep filling away from the edges, as it may leak out when frying and cause the oil to spatter.
- 9Put seam side down on a paper towel or wax paper and repeat the process until you've made all 24 taquitos.
- 10Using medium-thick cotton string, toothpicks, or bamboo skewers secure the center seam of each taquito (if you omit this part, they will pop open during frying and make a big mess).
- 11Heat oil in medium frying pan on medium-high (about 325F) and cook taquitos 4 at a time turning frequently until golden brown on all sides.
- 12Drain on cooling rack on top of paper towels (this ensures the oil drains away and the taquitos stay crispy).
- 13Serve hot with guacamole.
