Mexican Food Night! Taquitos - Ole'!

Having left over roast in the fridge and a bag of corn tortillas in the freezer, I decided it was time for Mexican Fiesta Night.

Corn Tortillas
Meat (shredded beef or chicken)
Sharp Cheese

In a large bowl, combine left over meat, a 1/2 cup of salsa and a sprinkle of cheese. 

Warm the tortillas in the microwave with a damp paper towel over them. This makes them more pliable and easier to roll.

Scoop a few small spoonfuls of the filling on to the tortilla, roll tightly and put on baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with damp paper towel while rolling the other tortillas.

Bake Taquitos in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until crisp.

Once they have cooled to touch, use a serrated knife to cut them in half.

I like to serve this with black beans and guacamole.

For the black beans, I cook them risotto style with jalapenos, chicken broth, garlic and cumin.


For the guacamole, simply mix a clove of minced garlic with lime juice, pepper and a mashed avocado. YUM!
