Sweet Potato Taquitos

For Filling

  • 2 cups coarsely mashed sweet potatoes, about 2 large cooked sweet potatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For Flautas

  • 12 corn tortillas
  • Herdez Salsa Verde

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a medium sized bowl, mix all the filling ingredients together until well incorporated.

Lay out the corn tortillas and spoon a heaping spoonful into the center of each. Spread around and add more if you like. Roll them into tight cigar shapes. Brush each roll with olive oil to help broken and rip up nicely.

Place rolled, filled and brushed tortillas, seam side down, into a greased casserole dish or lasagna pan, in a tight even line, filling the pan from side to side.

Bake for 5 minutes, until golden and crispy. Serve, top with Herdez Salsa Verde and enjoy!
