Bacon-Wrapped Taquitos

by Sheryl

Taquitos are awesome the way they are but hey this bacon-wrapped version is a million times better! There’s nothing wrong with extra wrapping especially if it’s bacon. The smoky and salty flavour of bacon adds so much more to the usual chicken taquitos. And it’s pretty simple, fun, easy to make, and quickly put together. Serve these with your favourite ice-cold beer and go live your life! Next time, make plenty because everyone will never turn their back unless these delicious bacon-Wrapped Taquitos are gone!

Ingredients

1/4 cup ranch seasoning
1 cup sour cream
1 rotisserie chicken, shredded (about 3 cups)
2 pounds classic bacon
24 small (6-inch) corn tortillas
6 cups of vegetable oil
Cilantro, to garnish
Salsa, to serve

How to make Bacon-Wrapped Taquitos

Step 1: Place the shredded chicken into a large bowl.

Step 2: In a bowl, mix the ranch seasoning and sour cream.

Step 3: Set aside 1/4 cup of the mixture for serving.

Step 4: Add the shredded mixture into the rest of the mixture. Toss to incorporate.

Step 5: In a kitchen towel, wrap the tortillas. Microwave for about a minute on both sides. And keep them wrapped while rolling the taquitos.

Step 6: Place the tortillas on a flat surface. Then, fill the upper edge with around 2 tablespoons of the chicken filling. Tightly roll.

Step 7: Grab a strip of bacon and enclose the roll, securing with toothpicks on both ends. Do this for the remaining ingredients.

Step 8: Drizzle vegetable oil in a large heavy-bottom skillet. Heat to 350 degrees.

Step 9: Once the oil is hot, in batches, fry the taquitos for approximately 5 minutes or until the bacon is cooked. Flip them halfway through.

Step 10: Transfer on paper towels to drain.

Step 11: Serve the taquitos with cilantro, salsa, and more sour cream. Enjoy!
