    Amazing homemade Taquitos. My family LOVES them!

    Flour tortillas, Cream Cheese

    Prep Time: 20 min
    Cook Time: 15 min

    Notes

    If you don't want to do the circles out of the tortillas (since it wastes some of the tortillas), I just cut them in half and make them that way. This is a way to make the taquitos a main dish instead of an appetizer.
