Trader Joe's Beef Taquitos

This is the second time I've purchased these, and I like them a lot. I've had taquitos from several other manufacturers before, and they're all OK. But the TJ's version is much bigger and beefier. They cook easily in either microwave or toaster oven. The latter is better because it crisps the shell.

My only complaint is, like most TJ's products, they're a little on the bland side. A quick dip in Sriracha sauce cures that, however.

Will I buy it again? 

Most definitely. In fact, I doubt that I'll ever buy any competing product again. It's not like I'm feasting on these constantly. But three or four times a year, I'd guess, and I think it will always be TJ's from now on.


  1. Glad you all enjoyed the beef taquitos - I tried the chicken version and was so disappointed! Not sure if it was a bad batch or what, but the filling inside had the texture of baby food. This is only the second item that I have tried from there that I thought was pretty awful.

  2. Ha! Be sure not to miss tomorrow's post (hint, hint).

  3. Never before have a been motivated to go on the Internet to warn the world. The shell that tastes of paste and the filling that is flavorless with a disturbing texture (making a $.49 frozen burrito seem highbrow) have pushed me to it. I LOVE Trader Joe's. I HATE these taquitos.
