Homemade Taquitos

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of hosting three friends for three days of cooking classes.  And, with their help, we took a lot of pictures so we could share these recipes I have been wanting to post up here on my site...but just haven't had the chance, or in this case, the recipe was a little too messy to make while at the same time take pictures of the process. I hope you enjoy this family favorite of ours!

  • 2 cups leftover meat
  • 1 cup mashed beans (see easy instructions below on how to make these from bean flour)
  • 1 cup cheese, shredded
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 30 corn tortillas
  • Oil for coating pan and tortillas.  I use grape seed oil

First, make the mashed beans...either mashed already cooked beans OR to make 1 cup of mashed beans from bean flour, just add 1 cup of water to 1/2 cup of bean flour, put into a pot and cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes...or until the mixture is thickened.

Then, coat a large baking pan (with a lip) with some oil.

Next, in a food processor, combine the meat, mashed beans, cheese, and spices and pulse until the mixture comes together.

Finally, with a warmed tortilla, brush both sides with oil...

...fill with about a teaspoon of the meat/bean/cheese mixture...

...roll and place in coated pan.

One last time coat the rolled tortillas with another brushing of oil.

Then bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, or until brown.

  1. That must have been so fun! I will have to try this recipe. It would be a good variation on the quesadilla idea.
