    Mission Street Tacos White Corn Tortillas
  • 1 ½

    in. Canola oil
  • ¼

    cup Granulated sugar
  • 2

    tsp. Ground cinnamon
  • 1

    cup Powdered sugar
  • 2

    tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1

    cup Heavy whipping cream, chilled
  • 8

    oz. Cream cheese, softened
  • Whipped Cream


  • Step 1

    Heat about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of canola oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until it reaches 350℉.

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, combine and stir together sugar and cinnamon for cinnamon sugar mixture until combined. Set cinnamon sugar aside.

  • Step 3

    When ready to fry, warm the tortillas in the microwave for about 10 to 15 seconds, until soft and pliable. Roll each tortilla up and secure in place with a toothpick.

  • Step 4

    Fry the tortillas in batches in the hot oil, about 3 to 4 at a time, frying until golden brown and crisp. This will take about 3 to 5 minutes per batch. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

  • Step 5

    Remove fried tortilla shells to a plate lined with paper towels. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the freshly fried tortillas. Set aside to cool at room temperature.

  • Step 6

    In a medium bowl, whisk together cinnamon, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and heavy whipping cream until well-combined. Set aside.

  • Step 7

    Place cream cheese in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat cream cheese until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Step 8

    Pour in cinnamon cream mixture into the cream cheese and beat until just combined.

  • Step 9

    Add cream cheese mixture to a pastry bag and pipe into cinnamon sugar-coated fried tortillas, filling from both sides until the filling comes to the edges.

  • Step 10

    Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream on each taquito and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar.

  • Special Note:

    If you have extra filling leftover, serve it up alongside some Mission Thin & Crispy Tortilla Chips as a dessert dip!
