ground beef taquitos

We had these taquitos last night and they were delicious and incredibly easy to whip up! We were starving after a day of back to school shopping so there was no time for a picture but you can go to the recipe site if you need a glimpse!


recipe adapted from

1 tsp olive oil

1 lb of lean ground beef

1/2 sweet yellow onion, diced

1 1/2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp ground cumin

1 1/2  tsp garlic powder

1 tsp oregano

Dash of red pepper flakes

Salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

1 15 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed

Corn Tortillas

Cheddar Cheese, Shredded


Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef and break the meat into crumbles. Add the onion as well as the seasonings then cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the drained and rinsed can of black beans to the beef mixture then stir until well combined. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Wrap 8-10 corn tortillas in damp paper towels for 1-2 minutes in the microwave to soften. Place a bit cheese in the center of the tortilla then top with a bit of ground beef mixture and roll. Place, seam side down, on a baking sheet that’s been coated with cooking spray. Finish rolling the rest of the taquitos, sprinkle with chili powder, then spray each of them with cooking spray.

Place in the oven and bake for 5-6 minutes then turn over and cook for an additional 5-6 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. Serve with salsa and sour cream and enjoy!
