A few weeks ago we took out of the freezer some steaks to have the next day. We were very surprised when we opened the package and found a huge roast instead. Dinner plans then had to be changed for that day, but we did get the most out of that roast. We ate it with baked potatoes, then made french dips, shredded beef barbecues and then these little beauties out of it!! So it all turned out great. It actually made for an easy meal planning. I thought I had taken better pictures of these, but was wrong and the family ate them so fast!! Anyway this is s for sure keeper!!
Shredded Beef Taquitos
Makes about 12-16
2-3 cups roast, shredded
1/4 cup onion
4 oz cream cheese
2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 to 1 cup salsa
1 package 6 inch tortillas (corn or flour)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Soften the cream cheese in the microwave just a bit. Place in a medium sized bowl and mix the roast, onion, cheese and salsa together. Lay your tortillas out and place about 1-2 Tablespoons of the mixture down one side. *Note it does help them roll better if you heat the tortillas for just a bit first.
Roll up and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Lightly spray the tops with cooking spray and sprinkle with a little salt.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes (or until edges and tops are golden). I rotated min after the first 10 minutes.
Let cool for a couple of minutes.
These also freeze well. I was hoping to have some to freeze, but the family ate every single one in one sitting!!
They loved them!!
