Remove the meat and seed from the fruit into a bowl and mash it with a fork.  Stir in all the remaining ingredients and allow to sit for at least 30 minutes for the flavors to meld.

Next make the taquitos.  Soften the tortillas in a plastic bag in the microwave.  Mix the meat with the adobo sauce.  (Click here for a recipe for the adobo sauce). Fill each tortilla with 2-3 Tablespoons of meat mixture

and roll tight.
