Recipe: Easy Homemade Taquitos

I first made these a couple of months ago, as I am always on the lookout for new Mexican dishes, and they were an instant hit! 
They are super crunchy and delicious and they are a great, different way to eat your corn tortillas.

  • Tortillas
  • Cooking Spray
  • Filling (whatever filling you'd like)
What we like to use:
  • Black Beans
  • Corn
  • Red Onion, finely chopped
  • Garlic, minced
  • Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • Taco Seasoning
Make a big batch of this mix, using as much or little of each ingredient as you like, and freeze any leftovers for later (it's also amazing on polenta pizza!).
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet (that's big enough to hold it).
  3. Wrap a moistened paper towel around a few tortillas and microwave for about 30 seconds. 
  4. Take the softened tortillas, spray one side with cooking spray, and place a couple spoonfuls of filling inside, then roll and place on the rack, securing with a toothpick or two. Repeat until all the tortillas have been used.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, then turn to broil and let them in for one more minute.
  6. Serve with sour cream and enjoy!
Directions in how to make them is thanks to this recipe.
