Ingredients
  • medium onion ½
  • green pepper 1
  • ripe avocado 1
  • bunch fresh cilantro 1
  • juice of ½ lime
  • olive oil ½ cup
  • salt 1 teaspoon
  • chorizo links (about 8 ounces) 2 to 4
  • can re-fried beans 1
  • flour tortillas 4 (8 inch)
  • non-stick spray

Preparation
  1. Make cilantro-lime sauce by placing all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until thick and smooth. If too thick, add some water, one tablespoon at a time until it’s the right consistency. Set aside.
  2. For the taquitos, dice chorizo links and sauté in your IMUSA sauté pan on medium-high heat until browned, about 3-4 minutes. Place in a small bowl reserving oil in pan.
  3. Assemble taquitos by lightly heating up the flour tortillas in the microwave for 5-10 seconds, until soft.
  4. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of the re-fried beans throughout each tortilla all the way to the edge. This will help seal the taquitos.
  5. Evenly divide chorizo onto the center of each tortilla and roll tightly.
  6. Place seam-side-down onto the IMUSA sauté pan and cook on low heat on each side until golden brown.
  7. Spray non-stick oil as needed to achieve crispy browned exterior.
  8. Serve immediately with cilantro-lime sauce.
