How to make Rolled Tacos (Taquitos / Flautas Recipe)


Rolled Tacos are one of my favorite eats. Anytime I head to San Diego, I make sure to go to my favorite taco shop and order rolled tacos. This is the way I like to make shredded beef rolled tacos loaded with fresh toppings. Whether you call them taquitos, flautas or rolled tacos, this recipe is a good one. 🙂

1 1/2 to 2 lbs Beef (Chuck Shoulder Roast)
Salt & Pepper
2 bay leaves
3 cloves of garlic
1/2 of a small onion
1/4 tsp of Mexican oregano
2 cups beef broth
15 to 20 corn tortillas
oil for frying

Mexican Crema (sour cream
Shredded Lettuce
Cheddar Cheese
Cotija Cheese

*Use a shallow fry to prevent loss of filling
*A good fry temperature is 350 to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
*An alternative to fry is to bake @ 400 degrees Fahrenheit for
15 minutes or until golden brown and toast

  1. Such a sweet voice and smile. Thank you for sharing your culinary treats with us. I live in a small town in California, and my family and I have developed a taste for Mexican food. Now I will know how to make it at home.

  2. Seeing this recipe makes me miss Arizona and the little Mexican food places there, especially seeing the carne asada fries. The fries and rolled tacos we're my go-to dishes as well.

  3. San diego is my home too i love the rolled tacos when i was young i remember a place called Goldstar and one named cotijas couldnt get enough.

  4. I am from San Diego. (Pacific Beach) !! Love rolled tacos and have been eating them since I was a child..and I am old! lol You and your family are adorable!

  5. PRO TIP: Lightly grease the bottom of the pan. Heat tortillas till soft. No need to add more oil. Make a mixture of water and flower into a lite paste. Add you meat to the tortilla and roll 3/4 of the way. Dip 2 fingers in the paste and spread over the remaining part of tortilla and roll. The paste will glue it together. These can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. That's how there done in the taco shops.

  6. Wow!! My Jaw dropped when I saw my little downtown Chula Vista on your video! ha ha
