    Karen=^..^='s Note:

    Adapted from Family Fun: Like tacos, only neater to eat, taquitos have plenty of kid appeal. In Mexico, they're often deep-fried, but baking them works well too. It's easier and healthier, and the tortillas still turn golden brown and crispy around the edges. Served with salsa and sour cream, they make a quick and satisfying lunch or dinner.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the oven to 400°.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook them for 3 minutes, stirring often. Add the beef and use a wooden spoon or a spatula to break it up while it cooks, until it is no longer red, about 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Stir in 1/2 cup of the salsa, the chili powder, and the salt and pepper. Cook the mixture over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Place the tortillas on a plate and cover them with damp paper towels. Microwave them until warm and pliable, about 45 seconds.
    5. 5
      Top each tortilla with 1/4 cup of the beef mixture, spreading it to an inch from the edges. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the beef.
    6. 6
      Roll up the tortillas and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet with the seam sides down.
    7. 7
      Brush the taquitos lightly with vegetable oil, then bake them until the filling is heated through and the tortillas are lightly browned, about 8 to 12 minutes.
    8. 8
      Serve them hot with sour cream and/or salsa.

      I really liked these, they were easy to make and tasted great. Next time i will add some coriander and some diced chili to it.
