Beef N' Cheese Taquitos

As you can tell by looking at the "recipe list" here on my blog, we LOVE Mexican food. So it will be no surprise that this post is about...a Mexican recipe. Shock I know.
One of my youngest sons favorite things is: taquitos. I used to buy the frozen one for him to heat up at lunch time. The other day I was missing him, he is in Tech School (Air Force training) and thinking about foods he likes. hmmm taquitos, I like them, not sure my husband has eat them. Why not make my own. I mean seriously, how hard can it be?
So here they are:

Beef N' Cheese Taquitos
.70 lb ground beef
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
2 tsp taco seasoning
1 pkg Goya saffron seasoning
10 small flour tortilla

Cook the ground beef and seasoning mixes. Drain if necessary. Mix in the cheese and add 2 TBSP of mix to the tortillas, roll tight and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Serve with salad and Monterrey Jack queso cheese dip (optional)

  2. yum!! never made taquitos before, but you are inspiring me to try them out! great recipe, thanks for sharing girl!

    1. They are super easy, just don't over fill and roll tight. You can also fry them but I try not to fry anything due to reducing fat.

  6. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Have a look at my web-site cigarettes
