  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Spray a sheet pan with vegetable oil spray.
  2. Mix the spice ingredients together with a fork in a small bowl. Place fish sticks on pan. Spray lightly and sprinkle seasoning over top. We make extra fish sticks because everyone loves them!

Time to bake:

  1. Put fish sticks into oven for 4 minutes. Take out and flip fish sticks over & lightly season.
  2. Place pan back into oven on the 2nd shelf, and place the foil pouches on the top shelf.
  3. You want to warm the tortillas, but not get them crisp. Warming them will help keep taquitos together better.

  1. Now it is time for assembly! This is where you want to put the younger children in charge of placing the string cheese in the tortilla, and make sure they don’t touch the hot pan!
  2. Take 2 tortillas out of foil at a time and place on a plate, and add a piece of the string cheese and one fish stick to the edge, and then wrap tightly and set aside seam down. Repeat till all are done.
