Beef Taquitos

From Wayne Wallace

  

Who doesn’t like Tex-Mex and classmate Wayne has shared some really good recipes over the years. A few years ago he sent me this one for Beef Taquitos saying Several of just one of the reasons I weigh 250 lbs!!!” Not really.....

 

     3/4       pound Ground Chuck

     1/4       cup Onion, minced

     1/4       teaspoon Garlic, minced

     1/2       cup Tomato Sauce

     1-1/2    teaspoons Cumin

      1/2      cup mild Green Chiles, chopped (1 small 4.5 ounce can)

      12       Corn tortillas

                 Oil

                 Salsa

                 Sour Cream

                 Guacamole

 

Brown beef and drain. Add onion and garlic to beef; cook until soft.

 

Stir in tomato sauce, cumin and chiles. Simmer for 5 minutes. Set aside.

 

Briefly heat each tortilla in a pan with a little oil until soft enough to roll.

 

Fill each tortilla with some of the meat mixture. Roll tightly (into the shape of a medium-sized cigar). Set aside.

 

Heat 1/3 inch of oil. Quickly brown each taquito (about one minute).

 

Serve warm with sides of salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.

 

Makes about 12.

 

Note: Translated, taquitos means "little tacos."
