- flour tortillas

- taco seasoning
- 1 can green chilis
- non-stick cookie spray
- minced garlic
- chopped onion (opt.)
- chopped bell pepper (opt)
1. Brown 1-2 lbs of ground beef or ground turkey with onion, bell peppers, and or garlic if desired. We used turkey. As for the amount, just use however much you normally would! Remember that these will freeze really well to have for future meals, also Monkey took one to school and ate it cold for lunch. She really enjoyed it!
2. Once you’ve browned the meat, drain grease and add taco seasoning. If you used ground turkey, I suggest using low sodium beef broth to simmer it in, but it’s up to you! The broth adds a lot of great flavor! We typically use broth. Let it simmer until seasoning has soaked into the meat.
A. Mix in shredded cheese, stir, then proceed
B. Proceed, then add cheese
C. Skip the cheese altogether
4. Spray a cake pan or cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
5. Roll a small amount of meat mixture up into the tortilla shell. Lay into baking sheet and spray the tops. of the taquitos.
My Suggestions to go with them:
Mexican or Spanish Rice
I always hate trying to come up with side dishes! For some reason or another, it stresses me out! What else do you suggest to serve with it??? I’ll take all the tips I can get!!!
