Fabulous Taquitos...

My friend, Elizabeth, gave me this recipe, and it is AWESOME! I'm serious. I haven't gotten this excited about a recipe in awhile. So I have to share with all of my online buddies, now don't I? =)


1 med. onion, finely diced
1 clove minced garlic
1/2- 1 lb. ground beef
1 can Rotel, drained and finely chopped (I used my mini food processor for the dicing.)
2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
flour tortillas (not large burrito ones)
shredded cheese

Brown ground beef and drain. Saute onion and garlic. Stir in beef and next four ingredients. Cook for about 10 minutes on med. heat. Heat tortillas in microwave to soften. Top with 1/4 c. of beef mixture, spread out to within 1 in. of the edge. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Roll up and put seam side down on greased foil on a cookie sheet. Brush with vegetable oil. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes. Serve with sour cream or salsa if your little heart desires.

I made four of these for us tonight, two apiece, and then served them with mexican rice and broccoli. I made it with only 1/2 a pound of ground beef, since the cheese gives it plenty of protein. I froze the leftover meat mixture, and we'll get 7-8 more taquitos out of it. Delish!
