Ingredients Nutrition

  • Taquitos

  • 1 (30 ounce) packageel monterey shredded steak and cheese taquitos, with flour tortillas (or any kind of taquitos, chicken, with corn tortllas, beef.....)
  • 1 (20 ounce) can red enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups cheese (shredded Mexican Blend)
  • Toppings

  • 2 cups lettuce, chopped

  • 34 cup sour cream
  • 13 cup onion, diced


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Place taquitos in a 9x13 pan in a single layer. You won't use the entire box of taquitos. I usually get about 18 in the pan.
  3. Pour enchilada sauce over taquitos.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese over the top of the taquitos and sauce.
  6. Place back in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  7. Serve with the toppings of your choice.

You can't beat this for an easy rating! I used chicken taquitos with corn tortillas and they came out a bit mushy. But the flavor was still good and everyone ate it without complaints. I think next time I will try taquitos with flour tortillas to see if they hold up better. Still a great recipe!

Very good and very easy to make. I used a spicy beef taquito and it turned out fantastic. I think baking in the oven added a semi-homemade taste that I would totally pass off as homemade. Love the thick baked enchilada sauce bits. Thanks for a time-saving affordable recipe.
