  • The number one mistake when making taquitos is overfilling them. Doing these causes them to not stay shut during the cooking process. 
  • If you want to add some more depth and flavor, spray the tops of them with cooking spray prior to cooking and then add a touch of sea salt. Wow! You will love the flavor combination it creates. 
  • You can use any pulled pork you have on hand, if you don’t have any leftovers you can easily pick up a package of pulled pork at the grocery store. 
  • I always opt for flour tortillas when I make these, but you can use corn as well. 
  • Make a batch of pulled pork in your instant pot, it is so much easier and quicker.

You will want to store your leftover taquitos in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
