Chef Rob Nesbitt helped Robbie’s Gourmet Sausage Co. create a brand new sausage, the Al Pastor. He then had a little fun and made this taquito appetizer that can be made ahead, frozen and pulled out for dinner parties. For a healthier twist you can bake the taquitos.


  • 1 pack of Robbie’s al pastor sausage (casing removed)
  • 1 large red onion diced
  • 1 jalapeño finely diced
  • 1 cup finely shredded Monterey Jack or mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup of softened cream cheese
  • Vegetable oil
  • Corn tortillas


  1. Heat oil in a frying pan, add diced white onion, finely diced jalapeño.
  2. Remove the meat from the sausage casing and break up into the frying pan. Brown the mean.
  3. In another bowl mix cream cheese, Monterey Jack cheese together.
  4. In batches warm the corn tortillas in the microwave (wrapped in a damp towel) this will soften the tortillas and make them easier to work with.
  5. Spread the cheese mixture in the middle of each tortilla and add some of the meat mixture. Roll them .
  6. Heat veg oil in another clean frying pan.
  7. In batches with the seems side down fry the Taquitos until they are sealed. Flip and cook the other side
  8. Cut on a bias and Top with pineapple salsa or some pico
