About the Don Miguel Mini Tacos

Here is a little more information about the frozen mini tacos. On the side of the box there are a few paragraphs from the company that makes these tacos. It explains how these mini tacos are inspired by the rich natural taste of Mexico.

They are made from skinless chicken that is seasoned with authentic spices and includes a blend of two mexican style cheeses inside a freshly baked corn tortilla. They suggest that these mini tacos would be perfect for an appetizer, lunch, or dinner. I would have to say that I agree!

Cooking the Tacos

I decided to cook my tacos in the oven. I placed frozen mini tacos on a baking sheet.

After my oven was preheated to 425 degrees I cooked the mini tacos on the center rack for 11 minutes. 

They were so easy to cook and turned out perfect. I probably could have let them in for another minute to make them more crispy, but I was happy with how they were cooked.

I honestly really liked these mini tacos. They were a bit crunchy on the outside and had the perfect amount of filling on the inside. 

The only other mini tacos that I have tried are the Jack in the Box ones. I would say that these taste very similar to.

I thought that they might be very greasy, and while they were a bit as expected, they were not too greasy which I liked. 

I also liked that they had just the perfect amount of filling.

There was not too much filling, but just enough so that you could take a bite and really enjoy the crispy corn tortilla and the filling at the same time. 

I opened one up so that you could get a better look at the filling.

The filling itself tasted really good. It was a mix of shredded chicken, cheese and spices. I also liked that they were not too spicy. 

Even though they were not too spicy, they still had a nice Mexican style flavor to them. I ate them plain, but they would also be very good dipped in salsa, cheese or sour cream.

Overall, I really liked the Mini Tacos from Costco. They are the perfect easy to cook appetizer or snack. 

They definitely are very similar to the Taco Bell ones, but they are a great deal at Costco for just $9.99 for a box of 72. If you are looking for some great tasting, easy to cook mini tacos, I would definitely suggest that you try them.
