What Is a Taquito and its History?

A taquito is a Mexican dish consisting of a rolled taco fried with a meat filling. Fillings range typically of beef, chicken, or pork. Toppings include sour cream or guacamole. Translated from Spanish, taquito means "small taco". Taquitos are sometimes confused with flautas. Flauntas are made traditionally from flour tortillas and are larger and sometimes narrower. Taquitos are made from corn tortillas.

According to historical sources, two Southern California restaurants are given credit for the taquito. San Diego restauranteur Ralph Pesqueria Sr., owner of El Indio, popularized it during the 1940s. Requests from nearby factory workers sought a convenient lunch. El Indio still exists today some 70 years later.

Aurora Guerrero opened Cielito Lindo on Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles in 1934. Olvera Street was the original epic center of Los Angeles. 

Today they can be found just about everywhere including food trucks and frozen supermarkets.
