    Taquitos NM style

    Taquitos NM style

    These are very good.
    I sear and cook a roast
    I put onions on top
    Lots of garlic salt and black pepper and red chili powder
    Add some water when cooking
    When done pour liquid off and save
    I pour off the grease of the liquid

    After it is done I put it though my meat grinder [add liquid back as or if needed]
    Now is the time to add more garlic salt, red chili powder, black pepper
    Season to taste [hot].

    Ahead of time [as they will be hot to handle]
    Take corn tortillas and fry them a few seconds in oil till soft
    Fry to long or not enough you can not roll them. [Practice]
    I drain them on a little bent cake cooling wire in a pie pan.


    Take your meat about 1 Tbs roll into a log place 1 “inside a tortilla”
    [I use a sausage making tool to make logs]
    And roll up tight, use a toothpick to secure.
    Then I deep fry them till the tortillas are hard.

    You can freeze the meat to make more, later. I make a large batch when I make them and freeze them ahead. I defrost in the micro then put them in a toaster oven to harden the tortillas again.

    I dip them in this salsa:

    Tomato salsa NM style
    One gallon tomato sauce
    4 large onions diced
    1 cup hot green chili chopped
    6 jalapeno diced [may add powered instead]
    Garlic salt to taste
    Heat in a large pan –simmer about 15 mins
    Pour into containers and freeze
    Use as needed- I defrost in the micro.
    You can quarter for smaller batch, but why cook again?

    Sounds tasty! I don't deep fry- do you think that these would work in the oven?
    I think I might try- have some lovely left over roast beef in the fridge as it happens :-)

    I have never tried left over meat. I guess it would work if you season it good. I can tell you when you cook a roast this way it taste different. Try it and see. Let us know.>>
    You have to fry the tortillas to roll them. You may be able to bake them, try it and see.>>

    If you heat this ground meat>>
    Put it on a large hot flour tortilla with a little graded cheese, green chili, and salsa>>
    Roll it up and eat it. It is a meal itself.>>

    Ayeee!! Phyllis, everytime I read your receipes from NM, I get sooo hungry. Everytime I go back home to Albuq. I bring back all the green & red chili I can carry in my suitcase. One time last year coming back to Denver, this man got on the plane with a huge sack of red chili pods, he was not going to let that chili go underneath the plane and I didn't blame him. Next time I fly I am going to do the same thing. I don't want my chili getting lost!! Oh no!!
    will quilt 4EVER

    You can definitely use leftover meat to make tacos or taquitos or enchiladas or burritos. Beef, turkey chicken, pork. Yum yum!
