How to Make Taquito Salad

Here’s how to make Taquito Salad.

  1. Defrost the taquitos for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator and cut them into threes or fours your choice and preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Place taquitos on a bake sheet in a 350°F oven and bake 6-8 minutes until golden brown and crunchy. Turn oven off, open it slightly to allow heat to slowly dissipate and hold taquitos.
  3. Place half of the lettuce in the bottom of a large deep glass bowl, layer the drained Mexican corn evenly over the lettuce, then layer the drained black beans evenly over the corn, then layer the diced tomatoes evenly over black beans, then layer half of the cut taquitos over tomatoes.
  4. Repeat the layering process with the remaining ingredients, leaving the cheese, olives, and green onions to garnish the top.
  5. Serve salad mix and apply Spicy Ranch dressing as needed.
