Ground Beef, Black Bean, and Cheddar Cheese Taquitos
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
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
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.

I love how you can always think on your feet when quests arrive. It is a rare quality!!! Love meal!
I was the lucky guest of this creative and talented chef:) They were wonderful and I highly recommend them w/ the homeade guac. Perfect meal with great friends!!!
Lots of flavor in these. It's great to be able to share recipes like this with friends.
YUM! I like that these will fix your craving for crispy fast food but in an affordable and healthier way! =D
Looks wonderful and tempting.
Made these today, or I guess now it would be yesterday, sooo yummy! We will be adding this to our favs!
Would this work in a conventional oven? We’re getting out kitchen remodeled and our oven isn’t hooked up yet. So I’m hoping to cook this scrumptious dinner in the little convec oven. Thanks! Looks amaaaazing 🙂
I am sure it would work just fine!
I make these for my picky husband and son and they love them! I’ve used regular flour tortillas as well as wheat tortillas. I also add a can of corn for a little more texture. They always ask for these when I ask for suggestions for dinners!
In the first step you describe are you only cooking the raw meat 4-5 minutes and having it finish in the oven? or are you saying cook the meat till brown then add seasonings and onions? Sorry just concerned, don’t want to serve raw meat.
Cook your meat until it’s browned… it will finish cooking in the oven. I hope this helps.
Just made these tonight with refried beans instead of black beans and they were delicious and SO easy! Thanks for sharing!
I just made these minus the beans (we just moved and my canned goods are in a box somewhere!) and they were delicious. And easy! I’ll definitely make them again 🙂
Thanks for this delicious tortilla recipe. It is remarkable that you ‘invented’ this at such short notice.
