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.
Pros: Crunchy yet soft and bendable. Now, that is a taquito. Unfortunately, in the recipe, the taquitos were drowned in a broth that turned them to mush. Eaten by themselves, the texture is great!
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.
