Delimex Taquitos

taquitosUnlike most diet blogs, I can’t guarantee that every single food item I bring up is going to be taken from the “it’s good for you” files. After all, this category is called, “You Know What Sounds Good Right Now?” and not “You Know What Kind of Vegetable I Should Be Eating Right Now?”

So today’s little healthy tidbit is the Delimex Chicken Taquito. I don’t know what’s in them and I don’t want to know. After all, it’s just a cardboard box from Sam’s Club containing some sort of food product wrapped in plastic. These could be soylent green taquitos for all I know. The important thing is that you can pull a small handful of these puppies out of the freezer and in less than five minutes, you’re scalding your tongue with the most delicious quasi-Mexican food the Wal-Mart family can provide.

I won’t tell you how many of these our family goes through in a week. But I will tell you that buying Delimex stock wouldn’t be the worst financial decision you ever made.

In other random news, I watched Star Wars last night (the original 1977 film … er, well, the strange 1997 version of the original 1977 film) and something occurred to me. At the end, when they’re piling into the X-wing fighters to destroy a “that’s no moon” sized space station with two little balls of light, I thought to myself, “What the heck is Luke doing in there?” I mean, he was a farm boy like six days ago. Sure, maybe he bullseyed womp rats in his T-16 back home, but isn’t that like putting a crop duster pilot inside an F-16 and saying, “Good luck with the intense air battle ahead of you.”

I’ve almost bought a box of those taquitos so many times, but have always put them back because I doubted they’d be any good. But I guess on my next trip to Sam’s, one or two of those boxes are going to take a ride. Rating to follow.

Perfect storm of fast food, taquitos are. They have crunch, they have salt, they have protein (purportedly) and they are amazing delivery vehicles for other perfect foods like queso or guacamole.

They have a secret ingredient, too. Crack. And if you drizzle them with queso then that’s like putting heroin on top of crack. Only thing that even comes close to how addictive they are is/are(?) Cheezits.

So I’m really glad each taquito only has 7 calories each. Right? Right???!!

Nothing comes close to the addictive power of Cheez-Its. There’s a reason it’s right up there in the banner graphic. 🙂

I whisk a cream soup, enchilada sauce and chicken broth together and pour over the taquitos in a 9X13. I bake ’em for about 45 min. and then top w/cheese and black olives and cook another 10-15 min and tada! Easy and vegetarian when you use the Three Cheese Taquitos. Yum-O

    Not vegetarian if you use chicken broth.

Bought a box September 2015. Found out the hard way there is only a taste of meat in the chicken taquitos by Heinz Delimex. A tiny pinch of chicken in the middle and an inch and a half of nothing but tortilla on each end. Never buying these again. Total rip off.
