Small bites, big flavor.Rolled taquitos are kid-friendly, delicious and simple to make. If you have a slow cooker, prepare the tender and juicy pork on a weekend, refrigerate and assemble during the week for a delicious, Latin-inspired family dinner. Top them with your favorite salsa, chopped greens and guacamole, and I guarantee this meal will be a family favorite.
