Sizzling Soy Chicken Taquitos

Crispy tortillas encase spicy soy chicken to create this delicious dish that is perfect as an appetizer or a main course.

3 Tbsp. canola oil, plus additional oil for frying the taquitos
1 medium onion, diced
2 medium Anaheim peppers
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. vegetarian chicken, torn into small pieces (try Worthington Chic-Ketts or Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Chik'n Strips)
1 28-oz. can crushed tomatoes
2 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. oregano
2 cups faux chicken broth or vegetable broth
Salt, to taste
18 to 24 corn tortillas

  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the onion, peppers, and garlic. Sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the vegetarian chicken and continue cooking for 3 more minutes.
  • Blend the tomatoes, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, and oregano in a blender and pour into the saucepan. Bring to a boil and add the broth. Simmer over medium heat, covered, for about 25 minutes. Season with the salt.
  • Wrap the tortillas in a damp cloth, place in the oven, and heat through, until soft, under low heat.
  • Strain the sauce and place 1 Tbsp. of the mixture in the center of each tortilla. Roll the tortilla tightly and use a toothpick to hold it. Repeat for the remaining tortillas.
  • In a medium sauté pan, heat enough oil to cover the taquitos two-thirds deep. Fry the taquitos for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel.
  • Remove the toothpicks and serve with your favorite salsa, nondairy sour cream, and guacamole on the side.

Have you seen her menu yet?  It's probably her birthday is past due by now. Just in case you haven't seen her menu, here is the list.  Please write to her...I wonder if she has a warm heart towards to her dogs. I guess as long as it is not her dog's fatty liver, it's okay to eat up???  It's very depressing to know who she real is behind the nice smile and her shows.  And so many people love her because spends lots of her $ to other citizens.  Well you are to judge her.

1. Veal
2. lobster
3. foie gras

Surprised anybody? You shouldn’t be. This is a woman who had room in her home and heart for 5 dogs - ALL OF WHOM came from precious purebred breeders. Didn’t even have room in her heart to save one shelter animal with all that cash.

And she keeps inviting back to her show a notorious DOG vivisectionist even though
PETA has sent her footage of him and his gruesome experimentation on the objects of her affection. Oh no- I stand corrected. We all know she doesn’t give a flying f** about any other dogs except her 5 precious pure breeds.

Good luck getting her to care about a lobster then.

Gail paraphrased the well-publicized dairy industry
campaign with her own question.

"Got pet food?"

"You mean, those little cans of dog and cat food
contain minced udders?" I asked?

Occasionally, I find myself situated behind little old
ladies at supermarket checkout counters. They often spend more money on tiny tins of cat food then they do on their own groceries. The cans read, "100% beef." If only they knew this dairy industry secret.

Eisnitz begins Chapter Thirteen with a quote from
David Carney, a USDA meat inspector.

"We used to trim the %#&!*% off the meat.
Then we washed the %#&!*% off the meat.
Now the consumer eats the %#&!*% off the meat."

If you eat chicken, you might want to skip the next
paragraph. If you buy and prepare chicken for your
family, you cannot afford not to read what follows.

Gail writes:
"Today, thanks to automation in the industry,
individual poultry plants... can kill and process
as many as 340,000 birds per day.

Since it's easier to bleed a bird that isn't flapping
and struggling, most live birds have their heads dragged
through an electrically charged water bath to paralyze
-not stun- them. Other industrialized nations require
that chickens be rendered unconscious or killed prior to
bleeding and scalding so they won't have to go through
the process conscious. Here in the United States, however, poultry plants... keep the stunning current down to about one-tenth of that needed to render a chicken unconscious.

A conveyor then carries the shocked and paralyzed birds
to a high-speed circular blade meant to slit their throats
but which occasionally misses birds as they rush past at
the rate of thousands per hour.

After their heads and feet are removed and they've been
washed (and feathered), the chickens are re-hung on an
evisceration line. There, machines automatically cut
them open and pull their guts out.

In the scald tank, fecal contamination on skin and
feathers gets inhaled by live birds, and hot water opens
bird's pores allowing pathogens to seep in. The pounding
action of the de-feathering machines creates an aerosol
of feces-contaminated water which is then beaten into the birds. Contamination also occurs when the birds have their intestines removed by automatic eviscerating machines. These high-speed machines commonly rip open intestines, spilling feces into the bird's body cavities. Rinsing a chicken 40 times does not remove all of the bacteria.

Water in chill tanks has been aptly named 'fecal soup' for
all the filth and bacteria floating around. By immersing
clean, healthy birds in the same tank with dirty ones, you're practically assuring cross-contamination. Chickens that bathe together get contaminated together."

Gail finishes the chapter by quoting Gerald Kuester of USDA:

"There are about 50 points during processing where
cross-contamination can occur. At the end of the line,
the birds are no cleaner than if they had been dipped
in a toilet."

What drips down a cow's leg while it's being milked? Feces, mucous, blood, bacteria. A filter is used to remove those impurities before the milk enters the bulk holding tank. Drink that milk and devour the glorious essence of bovine excrement.

Eat their flesh and you consume those diseased animals that no longer produce enough milk to guarantee a profit to the dairyman. When cows are diseased, with cancer or leukemia, paratuberculosis or other sicknesses, that's when they are sent to their final fate. Your dinner produce enough milk to guarantee a profit to the dairyman. When cows are diseased, with cancer or leukemia, paratuberculosis or other sicknesses, that's when they are sent to their final fate. Your dinner plate.
