Go long for a great pre-game flavor bomb.

Level up your next tailgate with a single dish: BBQ Taquitos with Cashew Queso.

It’s got smoky, succulent BBQ. It oozes with melted cheese. It comes wrapped in a crispy tortilla. And, just as important, this BBQ Taquito is crispy, compact and easy to carry, convenient in any tailgate setting.

Taquitos with a twist: tasty cashew queso!

You won’t believe how tasty (or easy) our cashew queso can be! It’s a plant-based spin on a favorite beloved by all.

  • Total Time

    25 Minutes
  • Serves

  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 (16-ounce) package LLOYD’S® Pecanwood Smoked & Seasoned Pulled Pork with Pig Beach Mustard Sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 12 CHI-CHI’S® Flour Fajita Style Tortillas
  • 1 cup PLANTERS® Deluxe Whole Cashews
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 3 Tablespoons Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish


For taquitos:

1. In a large straight-sided skillet, heat 1/2-inch oil over medium heat until it reaches 375°F.

2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix pulled pork, cheddar and cream cheese together until combined.

3. Spread roughly 1/4 cup of pork mixture evenly over tortillas. Roll up each tortilla and place onto a baking sheet, seam-side-down.

4. Working in batches, fry tortillas seam-side-down, turning occasionally, until golden-brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to let drain.

For queso:

1. In a blender or food processor, combine cashews, water, yeast and garlic.

2. Puree until smooth. Transfer to a large serving bowl. Garnish queso and taquitos with cilantro. Serve and enjoy.
