After we enjoyed eating the Chicken Taquitos , I decided to make beef taquitos since I had some left over roast beef. The beef taquitos are a bit on the spicy side if you like it milder, just decrease the amount of chipotle salsa. Enjoy this taquitos with guacamole and sour cream. My 2 year old son loved it and it was easy for him to eat .( I skipped the chipotle salsa when making his taquito). These are also great as party food.I used white mild chedder cheese with my taquitos but you can use any kind of cheese you like.
