Costco Mini Taco Cooking Instructions

The packaging provides two sets of cooking instructions for the tacos.

  • Microwave
  • Oven

We also tried them in air fryer and they turned out great!

Microwave Instructions

  1. Place the tacos on a microwave safe plate.
  2. Heat on High for 30 seconds.
  3. Flip the tacos over and microwave on High for another 30 seconds.
  4. Let the tacos sit for one minute.
  5. Serve

Heating the tacos in the microwave is fast and easy but results in the tortillas becoming soggy.  We topped this batch with some Green Dragon Hot Sauce and, while the texture left something to be desired, they were pretty tasty!

Oven Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400F.
  2. Place the mini tacos on a cookie sheet.
  3. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  4. Let the mini tacos rest for one minute and serve.

Air Fryer Instructions

I didn’t feel like firing up my oven so we cooked another batch in our Ninja Foodi Air Fryer.

  1. Fill the tray with a single layer of tacos.
  2. Cook at 425F for 5 minutes.
  3. Flip the tacos over.
  4. Cook at 425F for 5 more minutes.
  5. Remove from air fryer and serve.

These tacos were SO MUCH BETTER than the ones we cooked in the microwave.  The tortillas had a beautiful toasted flavor and the crunch was intensely satisfying.

The earthiness of the corn tortilla paired nicely with the mildly spicy but brightly flavored chicken filling.  The mini tacos were great by themselves but it didn’t take long for us to start using them as the World’s Greatest Dippers.

We dipped the mini tacos into:

Very, very satisfying and tasty!

Are Don Miguels Mini Tacos Gluten Free?

There is nothing on the ingredient list that would contain gluten.  That being said, there is nothing on the packaging that says, “Gluten Free”.

I came across a Reddit Celiac thread where folks were discussing this question.  One commenter said that they eat the tacos and never have a problem.  Another person mentioned that these are produced in a facility that also processes wheat products so there is always a chance for cross contamination.

If you are extremely sensitive to gluten then I would skip this product just to be safe.  If you are only moderately sensitive to gluten then you wouldn’t be crazy to give these a try.

The Mini Tacos Are A Costco Value

The 35 ounce tray of min tacos cost me $8.99 at Costco which works out to a cost of $0.256 per ounce.

You can get an 18 ounce package of Don Miguel Mini Tacos at Walmart for $5.78 which works out to a cost of $0.321 per ounce.

This means that you will save $0.064 per ounce (20%) when you buy your mini-tacos at Costco!
