easy, healthier version of taquitos.

you haven’t lived yet, if you haven’t had taquitos. straight from the frozen food aisle, to the microwave, to your mouth. example:

{don miguel}

they’re delicious. but don’t look at the nutrition facts .. [because the fact is you probably don’t want to know].

until now: hello substitute.

insert scrumptious, healthy, & simple: baked beef taquitos. [from SELF magazine].

[I made them last night].

ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground beef [lean]
  • 1/2 red bell pepper [chopped]
  • 1/2 onion [chopped]
  • 3/4 cup of salsa
  • corn tortillas

steps:

  • preheat oven to 425*
  • brown the 1 lb ground beef. [as I did above].
  • add the chopped red bell pepper & onion. saute until veggies are tender.
  • add 3/4 cup of salsa. mix well.
  • meat mixture meet corn tortillas. roll ’em up. and place them in a medium pan [sprayed with cooking spray]. before going in the oven: spray the top of the tortillas with cooking spray.
  • place in oven for 10-12 mins [or until golden brown].

I topped mine with a LITTLE ranch dressing, salsa, red bell pepper & onion.

so simple. so quick. and sooo delicious.

[pairs well with a margarita]

[but to be honest, what doesn’t?? ;)]

happy tuesday.
