Beef and Bean Taquitos


Super Bowl Sunday is coming up and my kids asked for some fun taquitos to enjoy while watching the game.  These beef and bean taquitos are so easy to make and are so much tastier than the frozen kind found at the grocery store.  I really stuffed them with beans, beef and cheese and you aren't getting these out of any box. 

Grocery shopping with my kids can be trying sometimes.  They always see things at the grocery store that are just not on my shopping list.  This week it was boxes of frozen taquitos.  I told them that I could make taquitos at home really easily so they made me keep my promise.

These Beef and Bean Taquitos were a big hit with the whole family and they are on our Super Bowl menu this Sunday.  

Beef and Bean Taquitos
Recipe by Ramona from Kitchen Simmer

Small Flour Tortillas (about 15-20)
2lbs lean ground beef (93-96% lean)
2 cans (15oz) fat-free refried beans
1 large onion finely chopped
1-2 jalapenos finely chopped (seeded for less heat)
1 cup salsa
2 Tbs chili powder (the kind you use for chili con carne)
1-2 Tbs taco seasoning
1 Tbs ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and black pepper as needed
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or cheese you like for tacos 

First brown the beef, if it is very lean beef, you may need to add 2 Tbs of canola oil.  Then add chopped onion and jalapenos with some salt and black pepper to the beef.  Next add the chili powder, garlic powder, taco seasoning and cumin powder. Saute well.

Then add the 2 cans of refried beans and the salsa.  Mix well.  Taste for salt and seasoning.  Adjust as needed.  Allow mixture to cool down a bit before proceeding to roll the taquitos.

Heat tortillas to warm up slightly in the microwave by covering the stack with a damp paper towel.  Assemble taquito by adding about 2-3 heaping tablespoons for the beef and bean mixture across the tortilla and then top with some shredded cheese.

Roll the tortilla up and lay it seam side down on a oiled/buttered baking sheet.  I like to put some parchment on the baking sheet and oil the top of the parchment.  Then brush the top of each taquito with melted butter or oil. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until tortilla becomes crispy. Serve hot with salsa and/or guacamole.   Enjoy.
