  2. To the veggie mixture add the soy sauce, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix well and remove from heat.
Wrap tortillas in paper towels and microwave for 2 minutes to make tortillas pliable.
Spoon the veggie mixture into the center of the tortillas (1 -2 tablespoons per tortilla) add a sprinkle of cheese and then roll them up tightly. If need be you can secure with a tooth pick and remove after frying.
Heat about 1/2 inch of canola or other frying oil in a large skillet to medium heat.  (350 degrees F)
Add rolls to hot oil, placing toothpick seam down. Cook for 2 minutes or until golden brown and turn to other side.
Remove and drain on paper towel. Remove toothpicks and serve with guacamole and salsa.

***NOTE: If you would like to bake them. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Place the taquitos seam-side down on a foil-lined cookie sheet, spray the tops lightly with cooking oil and bake for 25 minutes.
