The idea for this recipe

My favorite bbq topping is pickles. I love the flavor of bright fresh cold pickles to balance the deep savory flavors of smoked meat and BBQ sauce. I was searching the house for an afternoon snack this weekend and this combo came to mind. Mixing some leftover pulled pork with pickles seemed like a good idea! I decided to roll it all into a crispy taquito with lots of cheese!

The crispy tortilla paired so perfectly with the tender and deeply flavored pork. The creamy cheese and bright fresh pickles rounded everything out into a perfect bite!

Only 4 ingredients to make this tasty snack!

only a few ingredients

I used leftover pulled pork, but if you want to make your own, this is a pretty straightforward recipe. Mine is basically that recipe bu with a little BBQ sauce added.

add the pulled pork and pickles and cheese and roll up the taquitos

Warm the tortillas to make them easier to roll, then add the fillings. You might be tempted to really load these up, but try and go light on the fillings so you can roll them into tight thin taquitos.

Frying the pulled pork taquitos

Place them seam side down in a hot frying pan with a little vegetable oil. I like to put enough oil in the pan so it is about 1/2 inch deep. Once browned on the bottom, start rotating them to brown and crisp on all sides.

Serving the pulled pork and pickle taquitos

I served these with a little sour cream, but you can use your favorite dip! Ranch would be a great option as well.

I love making these because they get crispy like they are fried but you only need a little oil to pan fry them instead of making a mess with the deep fryer.

Twists on this recipe

I mentioned that I used leftover pulled pork but you could definitely use your favorite recipe to make your own for this. Instead of regular pickles, pickled onion would be awesome! I would also love to do it with a creamy cheese like mozzarella or chihuahua.
