Kitty's Picky Taquitos
- 1 lb. lean ground beef (I used Laura's Lean)
- 1 packet of Taco Seasoning
- 1/2 of one large sweet onion
- 2 tbs of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 10 corn tortillas
- Pam Cooking Spray (any kind is fine...I used Regular AND Olive Oil)
- 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat your oven to 425* (not sure how to type the degrees symbol...if someone knows...HELP!)
So, start by heating the pan on medium heat and add the Olive
Now its tortilla time! Spray a cookie sheet liberally with the cooking spray and set aside. Take your corn tortillas and wrap them in damp paper towels and heat in the microwave for 1 minute. Then take each tortilla and put a little cheese and a little beef in the center. Carefully wrap one side over the other and place seam side down on the cookie sheet. Repeat this with all the tortillas. Once all the taquitos are wrapped and on the cookie sheet, spray each one with more cooking spray. I go pretty liberal with this...they get crunchier that way :o)
Place the cookie sheet in the oven for 5-8 minutes (the longer the crunchier). Once the time is up, flip them over with tongs and place back in the oven for another 5-8 minutes. Then your done!
I serve this with spanish rice (Zatarain's...its awesome! But maybe I will make homemade...someday).
