Today I fell in love… with my plate full of loaded taquitos. They smell just amazing and look… I mean, just look at them. This dish is as delicious as it looks!
I love Mexican food. I love eating at Mexican restaurants. Like, love it. So it’s really no surprise that when cooking up treats for a party, I would totally be thinking something like loaded taquitos. Crispy Delimex beef taquitos are smothered in a homemade queso blanco sauce and topped with peppers, tomatoes, salsa, and guacamole. Dude…
So are you totally drooling over these yet? No worries; I’ll tell you how to make your own loaded taquitos! Your friends and family will be so impressed when you whip up a big plate of this deliciousness to serve while watching the big game, for movie night, or even for a quick weeknight meal.
To start with, loaded taquitos need an awesome homemade queso blanco. No need to buy it in a jar because this is such a simple recipe that takes mere minutes from start to finish.
This Queso blanco recipe actually calls for white American cheese. No joke. White American cheese is the thing. It works perfectly for queso blanco. You won’t want to buy the kind that is individually wrapped, like what you would use for grilled cheese sandwiches. Visit the deli section and look there.
Cheese + peppers + cream = love
