You may be wondering what is the distinction between taquito and small wrapped taco along with flauta? Both of them are filled with meat, beef, chicken, and cheese) rolled and possibly fried or roasted.
Both are usually made out of corn-tortillas. Nevertheless taquitos are briefer. The shape differs, flautas are skinnier and like a flute.
This recipe could be made with wheat tortillas or corn-tortillas. I really make my own homemade tortillas which contain corn or wheat-flour.
Recipe Note for Vegan Taquitos
- It is possible to create the vegetable filling ahead of time and keep it in the fridge for 1-2 days.
- You can store leftover veggie-taquitos covered in the refrigerator for 3-days or freeze in zip-lock-bags for as many as 2-months.
- If you are not a fan of peas, just use beans or chickpeas to include healthful plant-based protein into vegan taquitos.
- It is possible to use vegan ground-beef, as a meat replacement if you want. Simply fry it with the onion in a pan.
- You are able to include more healthy vegetables also like sweet potato, peppers, mushrooms or zucchini.
- Desire them extra more crispy? Pan-fry that the taquitos with a few oil rather than baking!
- Dip in sour cream or guacamole, salsa, vegan queso and I often serve them with easy-vegan cheese-sauce.
