Meaty-Less Mexican Taquitos!

What you Need:

  • 1 cup of TVP
  • 4 or more Corn Tortillas
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves 
  • 1 cup cilantro chopped
  • 4 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce, Amino alternative or Maggi* (I really like Maggi it adds such a good taste, you can find it at your local Supermarket)
  • 1 Tablespoon Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Seasoned Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons of All purpose Flour
  • Water
  • Salt to your taste

Paste:

In a bowl mix ¼ water with your 2 tablespoon of flour. Mix until you get a thick paste. Set aside. This paste will be used to keep the taquitos integrity.

Filling: 

  • Hydrate the TVP in hot water and drain it. Wash it several times.
  • Heat up a pan with oil of choice and add the garlic cloves. This will infuse the oil with flavor. Simmer until golden then take them out and discard.
  • Add the onions and sauté them for 1 minute. 
  • Add the TVP and mix.
  • Add the Soy sauce, Pepper, Garlic Powder and Seasoned salt.  (add salt to your taste if you need it)
  • Sauté until TVP gets to a crisp. 
  • Set Filling aside

Heat up tortillas just for 4 seconds and wrap them up to stay warm. 

Grab your Filling, add to tortilla and roll it up – adding the paste to the end of the tortilla as glue to keep the taquito together. 

Heat up a pan, add oil to fill it about 1/4. Add Taquitos and fry all sides evenly on medium heat moving them around until crispy.

Dip in a salsa of your choice and DEVOUR!

Never stop dancing!
