We had friends coming over for dinner but I wasn’t in the mood to cook a big meal so I decided to brown some ground beef with a bunch of seasonings, add some onion, and black beans then use that mixture to make taquitos. I didn’t have a lot of corn tortillas so I made the taquitos thicker than usual to make them a bit heartier. I baked them in the oven and they turned out crisp and delicious. I served them with a side of homemade guacamole and salsa.
Ground Beef, Black Bean, and Cheddar Cheese Taquitos:
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 lb of ground beef
- 1/2 sweet yellow onion, diced
- 1 tsp coriander
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp onion powder
- Dash of red pepper flakes
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
- 1 15 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
- Corn tortillas (I ended up using two different kinds to use up what I had)
- Cheddar Cheese, shredded
- Cooking spray
Wrap 10 corn tortillas in damp paper towels for 1-2 minutes in the microwave to soften.
Place a bit cheese in the center of the tortilla then top with a bit of ground beef mixture and roll. Place, seam side down, on a baking sheet that’s been coated with cooking spray. Finish rolling the rest of the taquitos, then spray each of them with cooking spray.
