I was looking to create something with lots of layers of flavors and textures, and I wanted to pair it with a dipping sauce that would complement the spice and soothe the palate. I had so much fun playing with textures, flavors and snacking on the delicious California Avocado sauces that I made. ASouthernFairyTale.com

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Add the beans and corn into the cooker with the Spicy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork and simmer over low heat while the oven heats up and you prep the tortillas and cheese.
  3. Grab a tortilla, and place a bit of cheese on it. Place some spicy pulled pork on the tortilla; tight roll the tortilla and place seam side down in your greased baking dish.
  4. Repeat this until your baking dish is full.
  5. Bake in the oven about 20 minutes, or until the taquitos are golden brown and crisp.
  6. Remove from oven and cut rolls in half. Serve warm with Cool California Avocado Cream Dipping Sauce. 

Note: Tortillas are tricky. If you have good tortillas, they will roll with no issue. Some tortillas need to be warmed up with a damp paper towel before rolling.
