DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large skillet, saute the sausage over medium heat until browned - about 6 minutes (I like to break it apart into smaller pieces while it's cooking).
  • Drain 1/4 cup of oil from the cooked sausage.
  • Set sausage aside to cool.
  • Stir salsa and cheese into the skillet of sausage, mix well.
  • Place a tortilla on a work surface and spoon 1/4 cup of the sausage mixture down the center.
  • Fold tortilla in half, then roll up.
  • Secure with toothpicks.
  • Place on foil-lined cookie sheet.
  • Repeat until all sausage/tortillas are gone.
  • **You can prepare ahead until this point, and keep in the refrigerator until you're ready to bake**.
  • Bake, turning them halfway through cooking time so you get even browning, until filling is hot and tortilla is crisp and golden brown - about 18 minutes. **Check them at least 5 minutes early - mine were done quicker than 18 minute last time.**.
  • Cut taquitos in half, crosswise.
  • Serve hot with your choice of condiments!
