We made these super simple baked taquitos for dinner the other night and they were a huge hit! Some black beans, a little corn, chicken, rice, BBQ and taco sauces plus cheese…hello dinner.
This recipe makes six baked taquitos.
6 flour tortillas
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 cup of taco sauce (or salsa)
1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce plus more for drizzling
half of one (15 oz) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup of corn kernels
about 8 green onions, chopped
1½ cups of cooked rice (we used brown)
about a cup of cheese, we used Queso Fresco but you could use Monterrey Jack too
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with cooking spray (for easy clean up). Lay all six tortillas flat on the baking sheet. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, add your cooked and shredded chicken, chili powder, taco sauce and BBQ sauce. Stir to combine. Stir in your black beans, corn kernels and chopped green onions. Take your rice and divide it among your tortillas (spooning it down the middle of each one). Next, spoon your chicken and bean mixture down the middles of each tortilla. Finally, sprinkle your cheese down. Roll up each tortilla and place seam side down on the baking sheet.
Pop your taquitos in the oven and bake about 20 minutes. When they start to brown and crisp just a little, remove them from the oven and serve immediately with perhaps a little drizzle of either BBQ sauce or taco sauce plus some more cheese and chopped green onions.
Just loads of flavor in each and every one!
