TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST SPICY POTATO & CHEESE TAQUITOS + ROASTED TOMATO PINTO BEAN DIP

boil potatoes: boiling the potatoes to me is the best method here. boiling the potatoes allows them to stay creamy and soft. they make it easier to mold the potatoes into shape before rolling resulting in less filling loss. Also boil the potatoes with a little bit of baking soda so that the surface starch fries nice and crispy once rolled in the taquito

rolling taquitos: the key to getting a taquito to stay together without a toothpick is having the pan ready to cook the taquitos once they are rolled and less filling. less filling will make it so the taquitos don’t unravel. when placing the taquitos in the pan place them seam side down to lock them into place.

roasted bean dip: roasting the veggies for the beans adds tremendous flavor rather than boiling. toss them into a hot oven as the potatoes boil.

epazote: i use epazote in my beans because it’s known to relieve gas but it also adds a pungent citrus undertone that’s hard to pinpoint. epazote can be found in the fresh herb section of most grocery stores particularly in the winter. in its off-season you may only find it in specialty Mexican grocery stores. It’s a herb worth searching for.
