Baked Taco Taquitos Recipe

 One meal that I can always get my picky eater kids to eat is tacos. However, I can only handle so many breakdowns about broken taco shells from my kids. One of my favorite meals are our Chicken Bacon Ranch Taquitos, so I thought that I could just apply that same technique to our taco night . . . and it was a smashing success! We didn’t have tears over any broken taco shells and everyone cleared their plate. That is definitely a mom win!

  • non stick cooking spray
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 3 cups chunky salsa (divided)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 20 (6 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil and add onion and garlic. Saute for about 5 minutes until soft.
  4. Add beef and taco seasoning, cooking until meat is browned.
  5. Add beans and 1 cup salsa. Mix well and let cook for a couple of minutes so that the flavors can meld and the mixture can thicken.
  6. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the taco meat mixture into a tortilla, topped with some shredded cheese and roll it up.
  7. Place taquito seam-side down on the baking sheet. Repeat with each taquito. Spray the top of each taquito with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes (or until edges and tops are golden). Let cool for a couple of minutes.
  9. Serve with remaining salsa.
