I have reviewed this company before. In fact, it was not that long ago. I have to admit; I wasn’t too thrilled. However, as I had more product in my freezer, I decided that I needed to give it another shot. I’m really glad I did.

Pros: When I made the recipe sent to me from StarLite Cuisine, I was really surprised with the result. The product was not impressive. When I heated up the individual taquitos for lunch, the appearance was quite different. They were firm and yet soft to bite through and easily heated up for a quick meal in under 3 minutes.
Cons: I would still say they need more filling. That I cannot deny.
Pros: I remember being so disappointed with the taste of these taquitos. I had prepared the recipe given me by the company and was sad to find that the only flavor I enjoyed was the fresh cilantro on top. My husband was all grimace as he took a mouthful, and I took my time to really analyze them in my eating but found no spice, no strong taste, no flavor to keep me coming for another bite.
However, when I ate these taquitos by themselves, not drown in the recipe’s so-called “sauce”, I was happier with the result. Sure, they weren’t amazing, but they had more flavor that worked well with any Mexican-style dipping sauce.
Cons: They still needed a dipping sauce. I liked them with a sour cream and salsa mix, because they were still a little bland for my liking.
Cons: No cons here!
What I Love
I love giving things a second try. I like making old foods new ways, and I’m glad to say that this product is best eaten as intended. Avoid the recipes, and you’ll be happy.
What I’d Improve
Fill those taquitos right up with some meat or some tofu or whatever the contents should be depending on the flavor. They still need a little more substance to them.
