Chicos Tacos

Cindy Becker
Some time ago, when my husband and I were travelling, we found a restaurant in El Paso called Chicos Tacos. We looooved the food!
I have spent weeks trying to recreate this recipe. And there it is! Although it tastes a bit different, it's still pretty close to the original one.
I like to cook my chicos tacos on cold days because it can warm up like nothing else.

Other Ingredients

  • 1 packaging beef flautas


  • Step 1
    Put your jalapenos, serrano pepper, onion and garlic in a pot filled with water and bring to a boil. Wait a little to add the tomatillos in, because they cook faster.

    Repeat the same thing for tomatoes. Bring them to a boil and cook for about 7 minutes, or until cooked.

    Add your tomato sauce into a pot, bring to a boil and cook it down until you get rid of that raw garlic and onion flavor. It takes me about 15-20 minutes.
    Step 5

    Combine the cooked jalapenos, serrano pepper, onion and garlic with salt and 1/3 cup of water. Use your blender to puree everything.

    Cook the flautas just until golden brown.

  • Bon appetit!

    Bon Appetit!
