Crispy Taquitos and Flautas
A taquito, Spanish for Small Taco, Rolled Taco or Flauta is a Mexican food dish most often consisting of a small rolled-up tortilla and some type of filling, including beef, cheese or chicken. The filled tortilla is crisp-fried. The dish is often topped with condiments such as sour cream and guacamole. Corn tortillas are generally used to make taquitos; when flour tortillas are used, the dish is more commonly known as flautas. In some areas, taquito refers not to the rolled-up tortilla dish, but rather a smaller version of the taco.
