Deli Pork Taquitos Review

Costco Pork Taquitos

The Costco pork taquitos showed up in the deli a couple weeks ago and I just had to try them. I am a big fan of any new item at Costco, but especially when it’s food and even more so, when it’s Mexican food. For around $10 you get 6 whole taquitos cut in half, making 12 pieces. The taquitos are about an inch in diameter, which means they are much larger than the tiny taquitos sold in the frozen section. Each tray comes with two salsas to dip your taquitos into. On average, a tray is about 2 pounds of food for $4.59/lb.

Costco Pork Taquitos LabelTwo of us had the pork taquitos for dinner and were pretty full, which makes sense considering we each ate about a pound of taquitos. They are very filling, with a lot of meat in them. Another way to put it would be that they’re pretty hearty. I also really enjoyed the flavor of them. They were not bland, with the meat having a nice flavoring to it, and the flour tortilla shell was very nice. The instructions say to bake for 30-40 minutes, and we baked for 42 minutes. Still, they didn’t get as crispy as I would have liked. Next time I would try broiling for a couple minutes at the end. The salsa on the other hand was not very good. Neither of us liked it, and ended up dipping in another salsa instead. Hard to describe what it was about the salsa we didn’t like, but it was also on the spicier side. The label says it has fire-roasted tomatoes and jalapeno peppers in it. Overall, I was happy with what I got for the price, it was simple to prepare, and will get it again some time. Not something I’ll eat every week, but perhaps once a month. Have you tried it yet? What did you think?
