Freezing Taquitos

Taquitos are perfect for those busy weekday dinners, or game night! If you're feeling up for it, make a double batch, and then you'll have lots of freezer snacks for the future.

To freeze: Place cooled baked taquitos on a parchment-lined cookie sheet without touching. Then place the cookie sheet in the freezer. When taquitos are frozen remove them from the cookie sheet and add them all to a freezer-safe gallon-sized bag.

To reheat: Place taquitos in the oven for 10 minutes at 375°F, checking every few minutes until they’re warmed through.
