What’s the Difference Between Rolled Tacos and Taquitos?
Both of these are rolled into a cylinder. The difference is more of a guideline than an actual definition.
I find that taquitos have less filling and they’re rolled very tightly. Rolled tacos have more filling so they can include other things like rice or beans, if you like.
Corn or Flour Tortillas?
Either corn tortillas or flour tortillas can be used to make rolled tacos. You use what you like or whichever you have on hand.
If you use corn tortillas, check out my guide to keep corn tortillas from breaking while rolling.
Is it Better to Bake or Fry Rolled Tacos?
Naturally, I’m going to say that my favorite rolled tacos are made with flour tortillas then deep fried. The tortilla crisps up and reminds me of the Crispitos you get a diners and delis.
I wanted something a little more health conscious and I went with baked rolled tacos instead.
Can You Fry These Tacos?
Yes! Make sure to close them with toothpicks because they will definitely unroll immediately.
You can expect to add about 60-100 calories per taquito from oil absorption. Very tasty, but maybe limit yourself to having this only occasionally.
