Soy protein and textured soy protein are not necessary in a meat taquito. They make them tasteless and inaccessible to those with allergies.

If you are looking for something white, flavorless, and dissatisfying, look no further. It fails as a standalone food and a dip delivery system.

Better than Delimex

Ali - 7 months ago, Verified purchaser
I dont know how people can rate Delimex more than these El Monterey taquitos — don’t get me wrong, these aren’t heaven on earth, but they at least have meat in them, a good ratio to the thinness of the crunchy shell, and are NOT flavorless or oily. There are better ones out there for sure, but for price, convenience, and availability, choose El Monterey.

Bad - 7 months ago, Verified purchaser
Back a couple years ago when covid was still pretty wide spread, I bought these and loved eating them for a meal or as a snack. Seeing all the one star reviews about how they used to be so good and progressively got worse make me feel so relieved, because I thought I was going crazy. Turns out i'm not the only one who used to love these and wondered why they tasted so trash when I bought a box again. Sucks that companies are willing to botch the quality of their foods just to cut costs, rather than making actual good products, it seems.

Eddie V - 7 months ago
It's been years since I had any products from Monterey. So I saw these and got tempted to buy them. The image shows them with filling. Spoiler alert. Whatever small amount of bland filling in the taquito, is overpowered by the taste of the flour. and that's not an understatement. I had to dip these in ketchup just so I didn't feel like I was eating empty, rolled up flour tortillas. I squeezed the filling out of 6 of them, and was almost able to fill a teaspoon. The taste of the filling is so watered down. Similar to baby food. Although I believe baby food may have more flavor. I would not recommend these to anybody. I may heat up the rest and throw it outside for the birds to have at it.
