I caved. I finally tried making taquitos from scratch.

Yesterday I slow-cooked a pot of shredded beef (ropa vieja), and naturally, I had about a week’s worth of leftovers. We all know that this will last Jake and I about two days, but it became a matter of creativity. And tonight, I wanted taquitos.

I made the tortillas from scratch — at about five inches in diameter, probably too small. I stuffed these about halfway with filling, probably too much. They are currently in the oven and have already burst their seams, but are becoming delightfully crispy nonetheless.

I do not plan on taking pictures. I plan on feasting.

When I try again, maybe, just maybe, the camera will make an appearance.

And now, a happy dance.

EDIT: AND OH MAH GAWD THEY’RE DELICIOUS.
