Chorizo Taquitos
Make ahead and freeze for quick lunches (or breakfasts!) Feel free to use Breakfast or Garlic sausage for less heat.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 14 taquitos

Ingredients

  • (1 pound) Ground Chorizo Sausage
  • (1 medium) Red Bell Pepper
  • (1 cup) Pinto Beans
  • (1/2 cup) Plain Green Yogurt
  • (2/3 cup) Salsa
  • (1 tsp) Ground Cumin
  • (1.5 cups) Mexican cheese blend, shredded
  • (14) 8 or 10 inch Tortillas

Directions

  • Brown chorizo in skillet until cooked through, breaking apart into small pieces. Drain.
  • Preheat oven to 425* F and spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Chop red pepper into small pieces. Rinse and drain beans.
  • Mix together chorizo, beans, red bell pepper, Greek yogurt, tomatillo salsa, cumin, and cheese.
  • Divide mixture evenly between 14 (6 inch) tortillas. Put the mixture in a line down the middle of the tortilla and roll tightly.
  • Place seam side down on a large baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve with avocado, sour cream, and/or salsa.
  • If freezing, allow to cool. Then place taquitos in a single layer in a large zip-lock bag (or two) and freeze. To reheat, either microwave for about 2-4 minutes (time varies based on how many are being re-heated), or bake at 450* F for around 10 minutes, checking regularly to make sure they do not burn.
