  • 6 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 6 spring onions, finely chopped
  • Oil for frying
  • Guacamole and sour cream if desired


  1. Fry up the chorizo in a large pan on a medium heat with no oil, until crisp. Soak up the extra oil with some kitchen paper.
  2. Pour the Refried Beans into a large bowl and stir in the spring onions and smoky chorizo.
  3. Cut each Soft Flour Tortilla in half and roll it up to make a cone. Use a cocktail stick to hold each cone together and scoop the bean and chorizo filling in with a teaspoon.
  4. Heat a pan with oil and deep fry the stuffed cones in batches for 2-3 minutes until the tortillas are crispy and golden.
  5. Lift your taquitos out of the pan and onto a big plate, remove the cocktail sticks and share them round at your next family fiesta, with Thick ‘n’ Chunky Mild Salsa for dipping, and Guacamole and Sour cream if desired.
