DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oven to 400°.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Place the tortillas on a plate and cover them with damp paper towels. Microwave them until warm and pliable, about 45 seconds.
  • 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.
  • Roll up the tortillas and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet with the seam sides down.
  • 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.
  • Serve them hot with sour cream and/or salsa.
