These Chipotle Hummus Taquitos are one of the easiest meals you can make. Serve them as an appetizer or eat them as a meal.
How to Make Chipotle Hummus Taquitos
First, make the chipotle hummus. You could use store-bought, but it literally takes about 5 minutes to make. It is also way cheaper than store-bought.
If you do use store-bought, you want a hummus that has thick consistency.
Mix chickpeas (garbanzo beans), tahini, a chipotle pepper, lemon juice, garlic, and spices in a food processor.
Normally, I add water to my hummus for a creamy consistency, but for this recipe you'll want to leave it out. The added water doesn't work in taquitos.
Wrap corn tortillas in a wet paper towel and heat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. This helps them to become more pliable.
Spread 2 heaping tablespoons or so on a tortilla. Roll tightly away from you.
Brush with olive oil. Place seam side down on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of tortillas
Bake for 16 minutes, flipping half way through.

Can You Fry Taquitos?
You definitely can. I baked these vegan taquitos to keep them healthier, but if you want to see how to fry them, check out my Vegan Taquitos with Green Chiles.
How to Roll Taquitos
Rolling taquitos is super easy. It's just like rolling a burrito but easier because you aren't tucking in the sides.
Spread about 2 tablespoons of filling on the tortilla, and roll it tightly away from you. Set it seam side down on a parchment lined baking sheet.
You don't want to overfill the taquito or it will be harder to stay together.
What To Serve with Taquitos
I ate my taquitos with salsa, vegan sour cream, sliced avocado, jalapeño, chopped tomatoes, and a squirt of lime juice. You could eat your with guacamole or whatever your favorite dipping sauce is.
