Frozen Friday: Jose Ole - Steak & Cheese Flour Taquitos
Jose Ole frozen Steak & Cheese Flour Taquitos (aka Flautas) are a convenient, microwavable op...
They come in a 22.5-ounce box of 15 taquitos for $6.49 a box or around $5.00 on sale.
Taquitos were one of my favorite school lunches back in the day but I was always miffed that they'd only give us two skinny ones for our entree (and was ecstatic when they had leftovers for second helpings!). Jose Ole Steak & Cheese Taquitos are a bit thicker and substantial (partially because they're made with flour tortillas and not corn) than my school taquitos of yore and I can eat as many as I want (Still only two oddly enough)!
The filling of a Jose Ole Steak & Cheese Taquito is like a over-braised shredded beef which is to say it a little bit paste-like. Still, the flavor is good; beefy, seasoned, and, a word of warning, spicy. It's not mentioned anywhere on the packaging but these carry a fair bit of heat. The cheese lends a bit of gooey-ness here and there but give little in the way of flavor.
