Taquitos
  1. Soften the tortillas in a plastic bag in the microwave. Mix the meat with the adobo sauce. Fill each tortilla with 2-3 Tablespoons of meat mixture and roll tight.

  2. Heat oil in a deep skillet. Gently place each in the hot oil and cook until lightly browned and crispy. Drain on paper towels.
