I lack the finesse to tightly roll a corn tortilla without letting it crack, even after softening it by warming it in a skillet first. That, and I was a bit of a glutton for filling, so there was no way my taquitos would be rolled as small as what you get in a restaurant. I put a couple of tablespoons of filling on the tortilla and tried to roll it as tightly as possible. What I also discovered is that if you take too long rolling a batch, the first one done will start to crack as it waits to be fried! I did, eventually, get all my taquitos in the pan, frying them in just a tablespoon or so of olive oil.
One of our kitchen lights is burnt out right now so photos aren't turning out too well, but these taquitos made a good dinner, and the second batch was good for lunch today! Add a little sour cream on the side and they're super tasty!
I ordered myself a new zoom lens last week and it just arrived! The lens that I've been using is an old one made by Kodak that I've had for about 10 years now, and it isn't the best quality. I'm hoping the new one will be a considerable upgrade and I'll be able to get some good shots of our hummingbirds!
