I used to think taquitos were only 7-Eleven fare, but after seeing them around more I finally realized they are a legitimate Mexican dish. I’m not 100% clear on the difference between a taquito and flauta, so I would love someone to clue me in on that. I am not one to fry food, mainly because of the mess but also because it’s not very healthy. This baked taquito recipe is just as satisfying as its fried counterpart, and it’s easier too! I served these crunchy devils with 5-Minute Mexican Coleslaw, but I also wanted to sneak one more vegetable into the meal. I did this by stirring finely diced zucchini into the meat filling, and you would never know it was there. That part is optional of course, but I always like easy ways to eat extra veggies.
