Crock Pot Pulled Pork Taquitos

Ready for our third recipe from our one pork shoulder?! Welp, here it is! It was the first time I ever made taquitos, so I was a little hesitant at first. I wouldn’t really recommend making these if you are a beginner with how the cooking process is. I was even a little nervous that I might burn myself but luckily I didn’t! These came out very tasty and will make them again and try other versions as well! Here it is:

Crock Pot Pulled Pork Taquitos

Ingredients

1/2 Pound                            Pulled Pork (From our crock pot pulled pork)

1/2 Cup                               Cheese, shredded cheddar or Mexican blend is fine

1/4 Cup                               Cilantro, chopped

1 tsp                                     Cumin, ground

1/2 tsp                                 Onion powder

1/2 tsp                                 Garlic powder

Corn Tortillas, this recipe make 12-14 taquitos.

Vegetable Oil for cooking

Now you are ready to fry them. Over medium heat, heat a pan with deep sides. Add oil so it is about 1/2 inch up the side of the pan. This is the tricky part. You have to place them in first with the seam side down so the insides wont just open up into the oil. I used a tong and my finger. Placing the taquito in the tongs, placing seam side down into the oil, with my finger i held it in place until the tongs were free. Then, with the tong hold the taquito in position for about 30 seconds, until it is fried closed.

Let them sit in the oil until they are golden brown on the bottom. Very carefully flip with the tong and get a golden color on all sides. When they are done cooking, remove with tong but let the grease drip out of each side. Then place on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet or pan to let the excess oil drip off and away.
