With these Beef Taquitos, we are making the filling to put into the freezer, then we can assemble and bake them. You could make the full taquitos and freeze them made, then bake them. But I prefer to use fresh tortillas for making taquitos.

Cooking Directions for Single Meal

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef with the minced onion and garlic powder. Once browned, drain and then mix in the tomato sauce and taco seasoning. Stir in the shredded Pepperjack cheese
  3. If needed, warm the corn tortillas so they will roll easily.
  4. Spoon the meat sauce evenly into the corn tortillas and wrap tightly. Place into baking dish or baking sheet, brush with canola oil and then bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tops begin to golden. If you wish to turn them once halfway through, you can.
