Mexican meals are a great way to provide a warm and filling meal for yourself or your family. These beef taquitos are affordable to make, and they don’t take a lot of time to prepare or assemble. You can have dinner on the table in no time at all.

If you’d like to expand upon this basic taquito recipe, you can choose to include refried beans or black beans in the filling. The black beans would get added to the mixture before you fill the tortillas. Refried beans could be spread into the tortilla before you add the beef and roll it up.

You have the option to serve the taquitos right out of the oven. You can also serve some salsa, guacamole, sour cream or even a basic enchilada sauce so everyone can dip their taquitos into the condiment of their choice.



Sauté the ground beef in a pan on medium heat with a little bit of olive oil.

Break the meat up as it cooks so you end up with cooked and crumbled ground beef. When the meat is almost cooked all the way through, you’ll want to add in the diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir thoroughly before taking it off the heat.

Step 2

Once the ground beef is cooked, you’ll scoop a small amount into each tortilla shell. After adding a little bit of shredded cheddar, you will roll the taquito into a thin, stick-shaped taco. Line them up on a cookie sheet or inside of a glass baking dish. Preparing and adding the rest of the ingredients after cooking the ground beef.

Step 3

Cheddar cheese: Use a cheese grater to grate the entire brick of cheese. A little bit will be added to each taquito.

Step 4

Tortilla shells: A scoop of ground beef and approximately one tablespoon of cheese will be added along the center of the tortilla shell. You will roll the taquito into a thin taco.

Step 5

Diced tomatoes: Diced tomatoes will be added to the meat mixture when it is almost completely cooked.

Step 6

Chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper: Measure the specified amounts into the ground beef mixture when it’s almost completely cooked.
