Recipe for 4 Taquitos


  • 4 each 6-inch corn tortillas
  • 6 ounces Vallarta-style shredded beef birria

For the Flour Glue:

  • ½ ounce all-purpose flour
  • ½ ounce cold water

For Garnish (Optional):

  • Guacamole
  • Queso fresco
  • Sour cream
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Lime wedges
  • Lettuce


For the Beef Taquitos:

  1. Begin by shredding the flavorful Vallarta-style beef birria.
  2. Heat a comal or a dry skillet over medium heat. Warm each corn tortilla on both sides until they become pliable and slightly toasted. Remove them from the comal and place them on a clean surface.
  3. Evenly distribute 1 ½ ounces of the shredded beef birria across the center of each tortilla, from side to side.
  4. Using a pastry brush or your fingertips, gently baste a thin layer of the prepared flour glue on one end of each tortilla.
  5. Roll each tortilla tightly, creating the classic taquito shape.
  6. In a saucepan, heat oil to 350°F (175°C).
  7. Carefully place the rolled taquitos into the hot oil and fry for approximately 2 minutes or until they turn crispy and attain a beautiful golden brown color.
  8. Using a slotted spoon or tongs, carefully remove the taquitos from the hot oil and allow any excess oil to drain.
  9. Turn off the flame and arrange the crispy beef taquitos on a serving plate.
  10. If desired, serve your delicious taquitos with a selection of accompaniments, such as guacamole, crumbled queso fresco, a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of chopped cilantro, lime wedges for a zesty squeeze, and crisp lettuce for a refreshing crunch. Bon appétit!
