Last night Graham and I made ourselves a delicious Mexican feast, that would make a great Cinco de Mayo dinner. One of my 26 before 27 goals is to try making a new recipe each week, so this week we made steak taquitos. We kind of just made up the recipe, so I think that definitely qualifies for "try a new recipe". We use left over steak from a previous dinner, which made it even easier.
Steak, cooked and seasoned with salt, pepper, & garlic salt
Shredded Mexican cheese
Diced green chiles
Oil for frying
Mix the above ingredients together, amounts based on how much of each flavor you want present, and roll them up in a warm tortilla. Secure each taquito with a toothpick. Then fry in batches until they reach a nice golden brown color.
They are really pretty easy, definitely something that you can play around with to adjust for taste and ingredients. And they turned out totally delicious when served with sour cream, salsa, and homemade guacamole. It also doesn't hurt to serve them with fresh chips and a margarita.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
