Taco Turkey Taquitos

Have you ever made taquitos? My kids absolutely love them (and so does my husband!) If you are looking for something quick and easy, these are perfect! I also love dipping them in ranch, sour cream, salsa, or whatever else you want!

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 (1 oz) packet taco seasoning (2-3 Tablespoons)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 20 (6 inch) flour tortillas
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • salt to taste
  • Olive Oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cover a large baking sheet (I use 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. Add beef and taco seasoning, cooking until meat is browned. Mix well and let cook for a couple of minutes so that the flavors can meld and the mixture can thicken.
  4. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the taco meat mixture into a tortilla, topped with a pinch of shredded cheese and roll it up. Place taquito seam-side down on the baking sheet. Repeat about 20 times (I had to use two baking sheets because all of my taquitos would not fit on one). Once finished, spray the tops of the taquitos with non-stick cooking spray (or you could lightly brush some olive oil on them) and sprinkle with salt (I like to use sea salt).
  5. Place pan in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes (or until edges and tops are golden). Let cool for a couple of minutes. Serve with salsa or your favorite taco toppings.
