Tasty Thursday {Baked Beef Taquitos}

We love taquitos in our house {at least my husband and I do}. We use to buy the frozen kind and make cheese dip and that would be our dinner...that was several years ago when we were poorer. It was easy and oh so yummy! I decided that I wanted Taquitos for dinner a while back, so I went on the search for a recipe. My first stop is always Tasty Kitchen but I didn't see exactly what I wanted. So I decided, I'm cool, I'm a good cook, I can make up my own recipe. So I did. Let me tell you, it was DELISH! I praised was that good. So I thought this is for sure going on my blog. I hope you all enjoy it and add your own ingredients to it. Let me know what you think.

1lb Ground Beef or Turkey
1/2 Onion chopped
1T Chicken Fajita Seasoning {trust me, it works}
1/2 T Chili Powder
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Flour Tortillas
1T Melted Butter
Sour Cream
Cookie Sheet
Pan Spray

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cook your onions in a pan till translucent. Remove onions and brown your meat. Just before all the meat is browned add your seasonings and onions. Finish browning the meat then drain if needed. Heat the tortillas for just about 15 seconds in the microwave just to soften them up. Put some of the meat mixture close to the edge of the tortillas, add shredded cheese then roll tightly and put on a cookie sheet. brush the melted butter on the top of each Taquito and then pop them in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Top with sour cream if you want.

I also made up a bowl of cheese dip to dip the Taquitos in and made a side salad too. I am so pleased how these came out.
