Last week, I shared my recipe for "homemade" salsa.....you'll
need that recipe for these beef taquitos.
You can use ground turkey or ground beef. I have only been using ground
turkey for the past couple of years and my family has been protesting, so
I made these with ground beef.
I made a "kid" version and an "adult" version.....the kid version had only
beef, a little bit of taco seasoning, and cheese.
The adult version had about 1-2 Tablespoons of salsa mixed with
2-3 Tablespoons of cooked beef and then sprinkled with sharp cheddar cheese.
After trial and error, I found that it's best to spread a thin layer
of the mixture over the entire tortilla and then pick a side and roll
from that side otherwise all the meat is in the middle.
To get the tortillas crispy, my trick is to spray them with non-stick canola oil.
I baked them at 425 degrees keeping a close eye on them until they were browned....about 10 minutes.
I just added some guacamole, sour cream, corn (leftover from the salsa) and my "homemade" salsa and it was a dinner that was a hit!
