around here, taquitos are generally deep-fried, so crispier - just meat and the tortilla, and then often they put cheese, sour cream, salsa and/or guacamole on top.

tacos, on the other hand, may have a crispy shell, but the filling is looser, and it has lettuce and onion and tomato and stuff inside. they tend to fall apart while being eaten, so they are messier. if you don't get the toppings, or put them on the side as a sort of dip, the taquitos are neater to eat - therefore easier to eat a bunch of them fast.

related, but not at all the same.

since I only eat meat and cheese on my tacos does that make them taquitos?

you have to roll the tortilla around the meat and then put the cheese on the outside. then it's a taquito.

in this part of the world, taquitos that are fried are generally called flautas.

Trader Joe's, Costco, and Whole Foods are good places to get taquitos.

here are some examples: http://www.taquitos.net/snacks.php?page_code=54

this site claims that flautas have flour tortillas and taquitos use corn, but that both are fried: http://mexicanfood.about.com/od/mexicancookingfaqs/f/flautaortaquito.htm

now, i'm confused.

Squig needs to be more sexier towards the policemen, pretend like he's a woman, which he has done so in various strips. I could just see squig pretending to be a woman and trying to get out of a ticket, it just seems as his character.

Taquitos are really common here in California, I had no idea people wouldn't know what they are. Mmm... crispy on the outside, dipped in beans or guacamole.

Where I am, 7-11 has taquitos. They are danged tasty when one has the craving, but I suspect they're not as good as 'real' ones.

Also, I really wanna know where Squig got that lamp.
