Black Bean & Cheese Taquitos
March 18, 2013—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
Taquitos is the diminutive of taco, and even in name these tightly-rolled, filled tortillas are endearing. Made by hand, Trader José's Black Bean & Cheese Taquitos start with the finest corn tortillas (made with only corn, water & lime) that are rolled, individually, around an umami-rich-with-a-little-kick filling of black beans, mushrooms, Jack cheese and jalapeño peppers. Fried in canola oil, the outer edges are satisfyingly crisp. They reheat easily from frozen—we prefer baking them in the oven. With 7 grams of fiber and 12 grams of protein per serving (4 taquitos), they are that much more endearing, especially at our price of $3.69 for 12 Taquitos.
