Beef Taquitos

4 years ago

Yesterday we had a late lunch/early dinner and this is what I made. It is beef taquitos. They are surprisingly kid friendly and very, very tasty. I made quite a few of them. I just kept rolling them up until I nearly ran out of the beef mixture... and I only stopped at that point because the picky boys followed their noses into the kitchen and claimed the pan with its contents as theirs. They chowed down on the beef left in the pan. I figured I had rolled up enough taquitos so I didn`t even bother to fuss about it.

I started by tossing in a pound of lean ground beef, diced onion, and minced garlic into a pan and browning it up. Then I seasoned it with all sorts of things: A couple teaspoons of chili powder, a bit of salt & pepper, bay seasoning, and a bit of garlic powder. Then I poured in some mild salsa. If you want more of a kick you can use medium or hot salsa. My little one wouldn`t have eaten them if they were very spicy. Then, I heated up some corn tortillas until they were just warm enough to roll without tearing apart. I spooned in a bit of the meat mixture and then a sprinkling of shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Roll them up and put them onto a foil lined cookie sheet. I brushed a bit of vegetable oil onto them and then put them into a 400 degree preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Keep an eye on them. You want them to brown up a bit but not burn (obviously).

I served them with a bit of sour cream. YUM! They had the perfect amount of crunch to them and the filling was gooey and flavorful. So good! And, these are healthier being done in the oven rather than pan frying them. I mean, clearly they aren`t the healthiest over all, but anywhere you can easily cut corners, why not?
