PREPARATION
PREPARING THE BEEF
1.
In a large frying pan or skillet, add the beef.
2.
Cook until the beef is done and drain the grease.
PREPARING THE TAQUITOS
3.
Heat the tortillas on a griddle to make them more pliable and easy to roll.
4.
Put a large spoonful of the meat close to the edge of the tortilla.
5.

Secure the tortilla with a toothpick. Roll another tortilla with its filling and again hold the center with a toothpick. (You can attach them in pairs).
FRYING THE TAQUITOS
7.
Heat the oil in a frying pan on high heat.
8.
Deep fry the taquitos in the already heated oil turning once until golden and crisp.
