Well, the struggle is real. C and I (and the dogs, of course) are still in the middle of a move and we’ve basically been Airbnb hopping for what it feels like is forever. In reality, it’s been a month and half, but it’s been quite stressful. At least, we finally know what city we’ll be moving to so I’m quite happy about that. I will reveal very soon where that is, so if you want to find out, the best thing to do is sign up for my newsletter because that’s where I’ll announce it first.
On top of that, I had to do my taxes this past week and what no one told me was that I shouldn’t have ever started my own business if I hate doing taxes. Womp womp. It took 5 hours but it’s done and I owe the IRS a crap ton of money, but I’m just glad that it’s over with and I can move on with my life… until next year.
Can you tell it’s been a rough week? After some of the longest days I’ve had, the last thing I wanted to do was spend an hour in the kitchen to make dinner. So my easy peasy solution? These delicious paleo taquitos!
I think making things from scratch is wonderful, but sometimes, life takes over and you ain’t got the time nor the energy for that. And thankfully, amazing companies like Siete Foods have made it so much easier to eat healthily with their high quality products with clean ingredients!
I’ve been obsessed with Siete Foods‘ grain free and paleo tortillas and tortilla chips, and not only are the tortillas pliable without falling apart, they are so delicious! I’ve been making tacos with their Cassava & Coconut Tortillas and even C says that he loves them. And he’s very picky about his tortillas.
I was a bit nervous about making taquitos with them because I wasn’t sure if they would crisp up nicely, but thankfully, these paleo taquitos turned out perfectly crunchy, and they made an easy re-heatable meal for a quick weeknight meal.
The only taquitos I remember eating in my life are the ones that you could buy at the freezer section. Do you remember them? My mom used to get us those all the time, and I loved them. Well, this grain free and paleo version taste so much better, if I do say so myself.
These paleo taquitos keep well in the refrigerator so I’ve been making a big batch, then reheating them in the oven for 10-15 minutes until they crisp up again for a quick, easy meal on a busy day. They’ve been a lifesaver for me this week. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
