Creamy Beef Taquitos

What a blessing it is that my husband’s company is so close to home. We take full advantage of more time together and cherish our lunch dates. This is something I made for us for lunch last week and thought I would share! These are not only yummy but very easy to make (and yes, for those of us with allergies- it is naturally allergy friendly!). Serve with homemade salsa!

  1. Plan on one extra for dinner tonight! I’m on my way over. Those look spectacular!

  2. Would love the company! 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe and inspiration! I’m going to make a batch of these today to take to our neighbors~I’m going to pair them with a Mexican chopped salad and some homemade refried beans! Yum! I’m glad there will be enough for our family too! Blessings to you and yours!

  4. Yum Yum Yum! I’m not a fan of the corn tortillas, so I would go with the flour, but this sounds easy to make and good.

  5. Janelle, would it be OK to use ground turkey and a different type of cheese? Sounds easy and yum! Thanks, Jenny C.

  6. Do you think these would be just as good using flour tortillas? This sounds amazing and looks super simple 🙂 Thanks, Heidi

  7. I actually prefer the taste/texture of Corn tortillas! 🙂 and I almost always order taquitos at the Mexican restaurant. Can’t wait to try these. My hubby will love this dish!
