These Taquitos Are Perfect For Appetizers OR Dinner!
Actually, these taquitos are actually perfect for both. We love serving this taquito recipe for appetizers, people can’t get enough of them! Any party or happy hour will do. I mean, who isn’t going to love a big platter of these taquitos?
But we also make this taquito recipe often for dinner if we have pulled pork leftovers or if we’re meal prepping for the week with a slow cooker of pulled pork. Our boys use pulled pork on just about anything, baked potatoes, french fries, nachos, on a bun or in these taquitos.
And the best part about recipes like these pork taquitos is sometimes you serve them for appetizers but then…you’re done. Your friends or family won’t be able to stop eating them and then you’ve just got yourself a two for one recipe!
Can You Make These Taquitos Ahead Of Time?
Oh yeah. I think that’s going to be a whole new menu item here on the site, food that can be made entirely ahead of time! Because we’re busy, am I right?
There’s not one person I know that would say they always have to time to prepare food for dinner each night or whip up party appetizers or dinner for a crowd. Which is why we LOVE make ahead recipes so, so much.
Obviously you can make the pulled pork ahead of time for these taquitos, but you can actually take these taquitos all the way through to the end! Roll them up, bake them, let them cool then freeze in resealable bags.
How Do You Make These Taquitos?
Flour or whole wheat tortillas are my choice for this taquito recipe, but you can use corn tortillas also, just make sure to soften them first before you roll them up.
There are a lot of recipes that call for frying taquitos and I am not opposed to fried food in any way shape or form. So fry away if you like, but I think these taquitos are just as good baked in the oven.
Start by adding about a 1/4 cup of the meat to a tortilla and wrap it up tightly. Place it into a baking dish, seam side down.
You might need two baking dishes to get all these taquitos to fit, or if you have one large dish that will work too. This recipe is going to make about 24 taquitos – so start inviting your friends over.
Brush the tops of the taquitos with oil and bake for 15 minutes until the tortillas are browned and crispy on top.
AND while they’re baking you can stir together the honey mustard sauce! This is our favorite honey mustard sauce recipe and it’s SO easy to make! We use it on all sorts of recipes or just for dipping (chicken nuggets, anyone?)
Drizzle the tops of these Honey Mustard Pulled Pork Taquitos like we’ve done here or just serve them as is with the sauce on the side for dipping.
What Other Kind Of Sauce Can I Serve With These Taquitos?
- Sour cream that’s been thinned out with milk and fresh lime juice
- BBQ Sauce
- Ranch dressing
- Awesome Sauce
