My love anything and everything ‘mexi-flavoured’. Give them tacos, or chili, or burritos, or enchiladas and the are happy little campers, but we added a whole new level of ‘mexi-ness’ when we made apple and berry taquitos!
Sweet taquitos!?! Yes please!
Not only have we added another ‘mexi-favourite’ to our list, we also found yet another way to use up all the homegrown apples we have been given.
These apple and berry taquitos are simple to make, quick to cook, and absolutely delicious.
Making them can be a bit messy (my kids get cinnamon sugar everywhere) but the recipe only has a handful of ingredients and a few simple steps, so it’s perfect for the kids to cook. They’ll need help with the oven, and serving up the piping hot taquitos once they are cooked, but the rest of the recipe is very child friendly, and older kids will be able to make these entirely on their own.
We love to make them with apples and frozen raspberries, but you could try all kinds of fruit fillings. We’ve also tried apple and rhubarb and apple and sultana, both are delicious. And when strawberry season rolls around we’ll be making strawberry and rhubarb taquitos too.
