Another word on Mexican food since I’m an expert. I pretty much will do anything for a taquito. You know how some people still have nightmares about the things they’ve done for a Klondike Bar? I’m like that, but with delicious taquitos!
Do you all remember those big plastic bags of taquitos they (used to?) sell at Costco? They were roughly the size of a 60-gallon Hefty and filled with delicious frozen taquitos? I basically lived off those and microwaved Steak-ums throughout middle school. I would love to meet other people who survived the same culinary upbringing and talk about how we still have the use of our eyes and didn’t die of scurvy and shit.
Anyway, these taquitos are from VegWeb, although I prefer this recipe. There’s also a recipe for potato Soyrizo taquitos that looks to be the bomb. Check out these jackfruit carnitas taquitos! If you’re too lazy to make them, three things. 1) Be my friend, 2) ALWAYS REMEMBER TAQUITO TUESDAY, and 3) you can buy those Starlite ones at Whole Foods and Rainbow Grocery and they taste JUST like the garbage-bag taquitos from Costco. Praise be!
It’s Taquito Tuesday at Flacos! »
Well, apparently every Tuesday is Taquito Tuesday and it’s a Tuesday so BAM: $1 taquitos at Flacos in Berkeley! We really dig these taquitos so you should get up on THAT. But also, how did I not know about this? I thought I knew about every food-related deal or steal or holiday in town. Disappointed with myself and with the system.
