There is no way you can’t take or eat these homemade taquitos, you can serve it as a snack, appetizer, and even for the main meal by combining it with refried beans and authentic Mexican rice. What a perfect recipe for your lunch and dinner! You should try it! You can choose to bake them or fry them, depending on how you want it. But baking makes them lighter.
To make this delicious recipe from scratch, get tortillas ready, you have the freedom to choose the tortillas of your choice. Tortillas made from the combination of flour and corn are very easy to roll up, and they won’t crack in the oven. I recommend you make use of these tortillas. Warm the tortillas of your choice in an oven or microwave them before you roll them up. Get your jackfruit ready. Once you have this bold and spicy jackfruit prepared, there is no need for rotisserie chicken. Get green chiles, scallions, and jack cheese, which serves as a binder in position.
Let’s get to work! To make these easy homemade taquitos, start by shredding the jackfruit. To shred the jackfruit, break the fruit, discard any tough pieces, and pull apart the tender, flaky jackfruit until you feel the texture of shredded chicken. The next thing to do is to bake it! Roast the jackfruit in the oven to infuse it with flavor, then roll it up with your taquitos. Add your green chiles, and spices to it (add it on a baking sheet), and bake it at 400F until you notice the jackfruit turns light golden brown, this should take you about 15 minutes. Follow that by stuffing and rolling the taquitos. All you need to do is to top your tortilla with scallions, cheese, jackfruit, and tightly roll the tortilla. Once you are done with rolling of your taquitos, place it on a baking sheet, spray it generously with cooking spray, and transfer it to the oven. Bake it until your taquitos turn golden brown, it should also be crispy around the edge. The last thing you need to do is to top them up with your desired fixings and enjoy yourself!
Also, spread the fillings toward one side and not the center! You need to know you can eat your taquitos immediately, or store them up in the fridge for about a month.
Note: To get the best homemade taquitos, make sure you warm up your tortillas before rolling them up.
We make these all the time now. Really good!
