Banana Taquitos

banana taquitos

There are times when I sit down to type a recipe post, and I think to my self, wow I am lazy.  I really just don’t feel like doing much of anything.  Then, I take a minute to think about all of the things that I do accomplish in a day.  It isn’t that I am lazy, I am just worn out.   Taking care of a family, working, cleaning house, running errands, it adds up. I know many of you feel the same way by the time 5 O’clock Friday rolls around.  So, it is nice to slow down with an easy recipe that allows me to have fun with the family and enjoy a treat.

Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow.  So along with all those nachos, tacos, guacamole, etc that will be served make this easy and amazing dessert! I seriously through these taquitos together in less than 10 minutes.  Then the oohs and aaahs made me feel like a chef at a 5 star restaurant.

I got out a package of flour tortillas and some bananas.  I actually tried both flour and corn and both worked great, but I got more eye pleasing results with the flour tortillas.

Laugh if you want, but I was out of toothpicks, so I used this big serving fork to hold my tortillas together…Hey, it worked! 🙂
