I have no words to thoroughly describe this deliciousness, but let me try. A few bloggers were recently asked by Old El Paso to create something new and delicious with their Old El Paso Traditional Refried Beans. We love Mexican food, and the husband and I immediately started throwing out ideas. We mentioned a few to our family to see what they wanted to see most, and my brother in law, Steve mentioned a twist on my taquito idea-7 layer dip taquitos. Oh what?! HECK YES.

 

How Do You Roll a Taquito?

Wrap tortillas in a kitchen towel and heat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, until they are soft enough to roll easily.

Keep them wrapped as you work.

Place about 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture on one side of a tortilla and roll it tightly into a tube-like shape.

Secure with 1 or 2 toothpicks.

Everyone loves 7 layer dip. It’s all over the blog world, internet, pinterest, recipe books and March Madness recipe line ups as well as every college football games, the Super Bowl, and every cinco de mayo party.

 

Can You Make Taquitos With Flour Tortillas?

Taquitos are traditionally made with corn tortillas, however you can use flour tortillas, which are much more pliable, and thus easier to roll.

Anyway, on to the important stuff. These little taquitos are slam packed with flavor. The refried beans have a little cumin and chili powder for extra flavor, cool and creamy sour cream and the bomb diggity that is Guacamole, then everything is topped with colby jack cheese, wrapped up and fried to a crunch, gooey, oozy perfection. And then dip those suckers in a fresh pico de gallo. I promise it’s the way to do it. It adds a little punch of freshness and bright flavor to the taquitos. Trust me.

 

 

Did you just die? I know I did and I just had one hours ago, but I’m ready for another.

What is 7 Layer Dip?

Mexican 7 Layer Dip is basically the same everywhere, refried beans- typically pinto, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, salsa or tomatoes, olives and green onions.

  8. Oh my WORD, Carrian! First of all, I am a total dip fiend, and whenever I’m around any kind of dip (7 layer happens to be one of my all-time faves!)
