These are not "taquitos" like you are used to.
This is "mexican" style hamburger meat wrapped in an rice paper (like an eggroll) and fried! Strange and delicious and FRIED!!!
I am not sure that this is technically "mexican food"...no self respecting latino/a would make this for their grandma.
It's certainly not "chinese food"...though without the rice paper this dish would not be the same!
I think I'll deem it "mexinese" or "chinexican"...either way your gonna love it!
These are very often the requested meal at my mom's house...and when she makes them she makes at least 40! We have a big family but more than that we have big appetites...shameful really!
Note* You must know that at MY house...I cannot cook this for dinner without making ranch dressing. Out of the packet...not out of the bottle. It is mandatory!
Note2* I have also adapted the original recipe (whom-ever's recipe it was) to accommodate my American need for processed cheese. Stop crinkling your nose! YOU don't have to add cheese...but...it's go-od!
