I made these up one night when I was confronted with a pound of ground beef and didn't want to make either burgers or tacos ... so why not combine the two? I used the white corn taco shells that come 12 in a 4.6 oz. box so they're kind of small; if you use larger shells the yield will be less; yield also depends on how much you fill 'em up! Also, a little of the tangy "taco sauce" I created goes a long way.
This is a fantastic recipe that you can prep ahead! I've served these taquitos, sliced in half, as appetizers. The chorizo gives them a nice zing. You may serve these with sour cream and/or guacamole on the side. This is a Sandra Lee recipe. Delish!
I *love* quesadillas, so I came up with this one for a quick and easy breakfast. You can substitute add or take away pretty much anything. It's easily modified for the pickiest of eaters. Toppings are not included in nutritional facts.
