  • For even crispier taquitos, you can brush a beaten egg onto them before cooking.

  • Experiment with dipping sauces- try ranch dressing or hot sauce for a different flavor experience.

  • To cook frozen taquitos, add an extra 2-3 minutes to the cooking time.

  • Want to get creative? Add some shredded cheese, diced onions, or chopped cilantro on top of the taquitos before cooking.
