Recipe #8: Chorizo Taquitos

Today we took a break from our healthy meals and had some good ol' greasy mexican food instead. Yet another winner from the Sandra Lee cookbook, I bring to you Chorizo Taquitos:


1 package (or 1lb bulk) chorizo sausage, removed from casings
1 cup shredded cheddar or mexican mix cheese
1 cup Pace chunky salsa, your choice how hot
8-10 burrito or fajita sized tortillas
Sauces for dipping (salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc)


Brown the sausage in a pan. Be sure to crumble into small pieces. Remove from heat and add the cheese and salsa and mix well. Put approx 1/4 cup of the mixture down the middle of a tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half, then roll and secure with a toothpick. Repeat, placing all the taquitos on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Place in preheated oven, 400 degrees, for 18 minutes. Cut in half and serve with sauces.

These brown up so nicely! Cutting them in half makes it easier to dip into the sauces. Be careful when they first come out- the filling is extremely hot.
