No-Fry Breakfast Snack Taquitos
Grab And Go
Eat With Your Hands
Breakfast Or Snack

No-fry breakfast snack taquitos...well, I guess the name just says it all.  It is great for breakfast and snack.  How many times you wish you could grab something for your little one(s) and/or you to get out of the door asap?  How many times you wish you could have something to munch on to hold you over until lunch or dinner comes?  This is a great sustainable recipe to fulfill all these requirements.

No-Fry Breakfast Snack Taquitos

Prep Time: 5-6 Minutes   Cooking Time: ZERO   Serving: 4



I saw a lot of awesome recipes out there with tortillas.  People like something different and eat with their hands.  So, it made me to think, "What can I do differently with a piece of tortilla in hand?"

The more I think about it, the more I realized that soft tortilla actually has an advantage compared to bread....it doesn't make a lot of crumbs or get too messy.  Of course, if somebody is messy, he/she can always find a way to make a mess.  You know what I mean.

As the ideas started to form, I started to think about that it would be another great on-the-go recipes.


Test Results

I purposefully did an experiment of making this no-fry taquitos 16 hours ahead of time to see if they will get soggy or dry out on me.  Great thing is that it doesn't get soggy at all. 

The tortillas sustain the texture very, very well.  But they must be wrapped under plastic or sealed container to keep them from drying out.

If you want to feed a big crowd by presenting a "bigger" plate of food, cut up these no-fry Taquitos into big chunks and make them as pinwheels.

Pepperoni and Cheese No-Fry Breakfast Snack Taquitos

My son loves pepperoni and cheese.  He literally put these 2 ingredients in almost everything.  This is the reason why I made this one. 

Since the goal of this recipe is to grab and go and no mess, I would recommend to skip the marinara sauce.  But it is really up to you.  If you prefer to have it, I highly recommend to have the sauce in the to-go cup or container for dipping.

Quantity of ingredients listed here is for making ONE taquito only.  Multiply the amount by the number of taquitos you plan to make.

Ingredients

9" Flour/Wheat Soft Tortillas
2 slices Sandwich size American White Cheese
2 slices Sandwich size Pepperoni
