Bean and Cheese Taquitos Recipe


Bean and Cheese Taquitos Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 Jalapeo, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 2 tablespoons Hot Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 15 oz can Canned Black Beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Thinly Sliced Scallions
  • 1 cup Shredded Mexican Cheese
  • 10 Corn Tortillas
  • Olive Oil, for brushing

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or spray it with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the jalapeno, garlic, lime juice, hot sauce, all spice, chili powder, cumin, salt and black beans. Using a potato masher or wooden spoon, mash up the mixture so that most of the beans are smashed. Add more salt if needed.
  3. Mix the scallions and cilantro into the bean mixture.
  4. Soften the tortillas by placing 2-3 tortillas at a time between two damp paper towels and microwaving on a covered plate for 20-30 seconds.
  5. Place 1-2 Tablespoons of bean filling in the center of a tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese and roll tightly.
  6. Place the tortilla seam side down on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling. Be sure to leave space between the tortillas.
  7. Brush the tortillas with oil on the tops and sides of the rolls.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  9. Serve warm with salsa, guacamole, sour cream, ranch dip or enchilada sauce.

Notes

  • Hot sauces and jalapenos vary in spice level, so be sure to adjust the amount to your taste.
  • Try to keep the cheese in the center when filling so it doesnt ooze out.
  • Work quickly while the tortillas are warm so you can roll tightly without forming cracks.
  • To freeze for later, bake halfway, cool and freeze in an airtight container. Bake for about 10 minutes at 400F when ready to serve.
