Go Truck Yourself Motif Mag Oct Issue
Ra Ra's Cheesy Fun ! I think men who can cook are sexy! Don't care what it is, where they do it or how long it takes. Now the taste is a matter of scrutiny and I can get a bit hostel when it comes to what goes in my mouth... As I argue with my friend Joe about the difference between Blue and Yellow corn tortillas I realize That one of my favorite food truck temptations is taquitos!, rolled tacos if you will or a quick delicious meal I always go for when I come across the award winning taco truck RA RA’S Surf shack... I talk about sexy men because Joe Boisvert
the owner of said truck can always be found on the truck cooking away and serving these amazing little packages of love... he’s one of those guys that's been in the business since he was a youngster with ice-cream trucks at 18 to fry shacks with shakes in 2022 ... I imagine that's where he developed his culinary skills that create an awesome blue corn tortilla taco, nummy nachos and tantalizing taquitos... The funky nostalgic graphics on the truck always draw me in as well... Joe’s empire, along with RA RA’S truck also include Axelrod Fry Shack in Warwick, and a brick and mortar RA RA’S Surf Shack on Pontiac ave. in Cranston. He’s a big burly guy with a nice smile and a fair sense of taste as you all might know he won the best taco at the Motif food truck awards, where you voted. He also runs the Oceanstate food truck festivals so if you’d like to TRUCK YOUR SELF ck out his social media sites @ osfoodtruckfestivals....
Here's a yummy recie for Taquitos

Oh! and I'd throw a little homemade salsa on there, of course!
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Combine the chicken and cheese in a bowl; stir in the hot pepper sauce. sweat the tortillas one at a time in a skillet over medium heat with a tble spoon of oil until flexible about 10 seconds per side.
Spread about 1 heaping tablespoon of the chicken over half of the warmed tortilla. Roll tightly to form the taquito starting at the filled side of the tortilla. Place seamed side down in the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining tortillas. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven
