A Taquito is a Mexican dish consisting of a small tortilla wrapped up around various kinds of fillings.   I made with mixture of potato, avocado and cheese.  The dish is also known as a flautas, because their narrow, tube like appearance.

This crispy, savory dish is a delicious and simply way to prepare. I made it in lunch today but you can enjoy it at any time of day. This is a good and tasty appetizer for get-together or parties.

I fried them but they can also easily be prepared by baking. 


  • Potatoes, 3
  • Mexican Cheese ½ Cup
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Ripe and Peeled Avocado 1 coarsely mashed
  • Corn Tortilla or any 10-12
  • Cumin Powder ¼ Tsp.
  • Red Chili Powder 1/8 Tsp. (Optional)
  • Turmeric Powder ¼ tsp.
  • Lemon Juice 1 Tbsp.
  • Coriander Few Strings washed and chopped
  • Green Onion washed and chopped
  • Lettuce Shredded 1 Cup


  1. In a medium saucepan boil potatoes in water 15-20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat.
  2. In large mixing bowl, shred potatoes, add shredded cheese, salt and pepper, mashed avocado, cumin powder, red chili powder, turmeric powder, lemon juice, chopped coriander and green onion.
