Taquito recipes homemade taquitos beef easy recipe


Introducing to taquito recipes

These best and one of my favorite Taquito recipes is very rich flavor and relaxing. They are smaller and in my opinion a little better than the rolled tacos. So they tastes very good and specific because of containing limited ingredients. And that is the reason behind the ease of making this recipe at home. Homemade recipe taquito recipes are always one of my favorite and best prepared recipe. Specially if it is the shredded beef, this version of the recipe makes me lost in the flavor. Just think of  that flavor of corn tortilla having the best toppings out there and a great amount shredded beef. The feelings makes me hungry even if I have eaten right now.

Now coming to the introduction of this recipe, in a nut shell "they are not actually tacos"! But they are matching with each other for sure. Actually the taquito recipes are a combination of shredded beef or chicken with beans or cheese. And a roll by corn tortilla in taquito recipes. While on other side the tacos are a little bigger and having more fillings like rice and jalapenos. They can be rolled by either a corn or a flour tortilla that is not specific. 

Someone can't just hide my love of these authentic Mexican food recipes. And probably that is the reason behind sharing all of these recipes with you. I still find some recipes that are new for me. Whenever I find some new Mexican authentic food recipe I get excited. Because I know it is amazing for sure. But yet there are things that I like the most in this food industry. And one of them is the recipe taquitos beef.

We will be covering the taquitos beef recipe today in this batch so lets just jump into it.

How to make the recipe

In Arizona we totally getting into the total Mexican food culture because there are restaurants every where around us. So it is now a part of our diet to have this great recipe in our meals. I specially like the homemade version but you can't just skip the restaurants too. So in restaurants they often have melt cheese on it and they also serve hot sauce or salsa. 

Cooking meat for taquito recipes

Now there are two methods of cooking the beef for taquitos. The first method is for those who can manage a lot of time and cook it slowly. And the second method to cook the beef is to cook it in an instant pot so you don't have to put all your time in it. And it is all up to you which method you choose according to your time and schedules. But we will share both of the methods here.

  1. The slow method: If you have enough time and you are willing to make it on slow cook then follow this method. Take the pieces of your beef and apply some peppers and salt to it. Chop some white onion for it and add it to the pot, now add cumin, some salsa, garlic and some broth. The broth is better to use beef, and remember to use a deep pot and a little more broth. Now leave it on low heat and cook it for up to 8 hours. After the meat should be soft enough to shred it. Use a fork and a spoon or knife to shred the beef for taquito recipes.
  2. The instant cooking method: Apply this method when you want your recipe taquitos to cook instantly. In this way you have to make your beef in such a way to cook easily. For that purpose you have to cut your beef in four pieces and make it smaller than the first method. Also place it in the instant pot or a pressure cooker and add all the same ingredients as the first method. Only one thing extra for this method and that is chilli powder. Now cook it for about 45 - 50 minutes.

Prepare recipe taquitos

Leave it until the timer rings, then let it release pressure slowly and don't remove the lid before pressure finishes naturally. Start shredding the meat with a fork and don't leave big chunks of fats into it. 

Take your corn tortillas and warm for the taquito recipes it in preheated pan with high temperature. Cook each side about 20 to 40 seconds on high heat and flip the other side. Heat all of them this way. 

Now lay your tortillas and spread 2 spoons of the shredded taquitos beef on one side of it and give it long shape. Roll the recipe taquitos up tightly and to make it more secure run toothpicks through it.

Now it is time to fry or bake the rolled tacos / taquito recipes. Again there are 2 methods to make it, you have to bake it or fry it in oil. If you want it a little crispy and a little oily then fry it or you can bake it as well it is all up to you.

How to bake or fry the taquitos beef

If you want your rolled tacos to be a little more crispy and contain more oil so you should fry it. Otherwise you can bake it in the oven with a little of oil, that will be crispy too but not like the fried version. We will share both of the methods.

  1. Fry batch of rolled tacos: To fry it take up to 2 inches of vegetable oil in a large skillet and heat it on medium high. Then gradually add 2 to 3 rolled tacos to the hot oil. The taquito recipes will turn brownish and will become brownish in a short time. Turn it the other side in the oil and cook for same time on other side as well. This way you will have your fry taquitos beef. Do the same for all the remaining taquito recipes.
  2. Bake batch of recipe taquitos: In order to bake them instead of frying them in oil you have to preheat the oven at 420 degrees. Take an oil brush and apply some oil to the tortilla rolls. And put them in the oven for 20 till it turns brownish. Repeat the process for all the batch.

Your rolled tacos / taquitos beef are ready to serve, now you can enjoy the hard work you just did. I believe they will pay you back for sure and they will be such a great thing to eat.

It will be really more worth it if you serve it with some guacamole, red easy salsa and some cheese. These will make your table look filled and it is an easy way to increase the taste too.
