BBQ Beef Taquitos

Another taquito recipe, this one is from chef in training and while we really liked the previous chicken taquitos, these we absolutely loved, so much so that we made them again a few days later.  The filling has a wonderful, creamy, BBQ flavor.  We changed the recipe slightly as the original had ranch dressing powder in it and neither of us like ranch at all. We halved the amount of shredded cheese to just half a cup and added a little more cream cheese.  When eating them we found they were great dipped in sour cream.


1 lb ground beef
4 tbsp cream cheese
1 cup bbq sauce (we used Stonewall Kitchen honey bbq sauce)
1/2 cup colby jack cheese
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic salt
Flour tortillas (we really like using ready-to-cook raw tortillas found in the refrigerator section)
Sour Cream for dipping

Preheat oven to 425

In a large frying pan brown the ground beef, take off the heat and drain.  Add in the cream cheese, colby jack, bbq sauce, onion powder and garlic salt.

To cook the tortillas, heat about 1 teaspoon of oil (just enough to coat the pan) in a non-stick pan, then fry each one to your own preference (about 1 minute per side).  Place on paper towel to drain any excess oil.

Place a 1/4 cup of the mixture onto each tortilla and roll up. Place the taquitos on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

Those look like they would be finger licking good.
