This Taquitos Recipe with Cheese, Beans, and Green Chiles is one of our favorite ways to tailgate. I could eat 50 of these MINI BEAN & CHEESE TAQUITOS! I just can't get enough. Such a fun and easy appetizer for the holidays or game day. This Homemade Taquitos Recipe is always a crowd pleaser.
Mix together the beans, chiles, seasoning, cheese, and cilantro in a medium sized bowl until fully combined.
Heat 2-3 inches oil in a deep cast iron skillet or dutch oven until it reaches 350F.
On a clean work surface, place 1 tablespoon of the bean mixture on the bottom middle of each tortilla and roll up as tightly as you can, securing with a toothpick.
Fry in batches for 1-2 minutes, turning as they cook, until browned and crispy to your liking. I like them really crispy.
Use a slotted spoon to remove from the oil and allow to cool slightly on a paper towel lined plate until you can remove the toothpicks.
Serve with dipping sauces such as salsa, guacamole, avocado ranch, sour cream, or hot sauce.
*I like the street taco size flour tortillas. You can buy them already this size or use a round large cookie cutter to cut out your tortillas from larger ones)NOTE: Taquitos are traditionally made with corn tortillas, but can also be made with flour; easier to roll and keep together. Totally up to you!
