Baked Beef Taquitos

My brother came over for dinner last night and he wanted Mexican food…so we made beef tacos and we had left over corn tortillas so we decided to make fresh homemade beef taquitos! They are so good unlike the frozen ones you can buy that are deep fried and filled with fake meat and cheese. These are made clean without all that extra grease and unwanted fat!

Yield: 6

Ingredients:
10 small corn tortillas
1 cup taco meet (we used hamburger meat and seasoned it with a packet of taco seasoning)
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Cooking spray

Steps:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Wrap corn tortillas in a paper towel and microwave for 10-15 seconds to steam and this will make them soft enough to roll (and not crack).
2. Lightly spray a baking sheet and your ready to roll!….with a spoon, place 1-2 spoonfuls of taco meat in the center of the corn tortilla then sprinkle cheese on top of the meat until its covered (about 1 Tbsp). Roll the corn tortilla and place on baking sheet placing seam-down. With cooking spray, spray the tops of the taquitos to prevent them from cracking. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crunchy!

*For a yummy dipping sauce we used homemade guacamole and then we mixed 2 Tbsp of fresh salsa with 1/2 cup of low-fat sour cream!
