Baked BBQ Beef Taquitos

Taquitos are one of the easiest dinners to make. Especially baked taquitos.

I was craving some taquitos the other day and asked my hubby if he had a preference as to what went in them. He instantly said BBQ and beef… a total guy response, right? :)  I had never heard of a BBQ Beef Taquito, so I decided to give it a whirl. We all thoroughly enjoyed this dinner, even my two picky kids gobbled theirs up!

If you are in a dinner rut, this is the perfect recipe for you. It is different, simple and delicious.

    Do you think these would freeze well for lunches, etc.?

    We LOVE baked taquitos, but I've never made a BBQ version. These look great (and like something my picky kiddo will actually eat - SCORE!).

    Ooh, that's my kind of meal right there! Yum!

    Have you ever made taquitos with corn tortillas? I have a gluten intolerance and I'm wondering how they'd turn out with corn vs. flour. Thanks!

      I make these with corn tortillas! Super yumny, and both my husband and my 3 year old son love them!

    I would have never thought of BBQ/beef taquitos either, but it does sound good and I think my kiddos would gobble them up!

    I am definitely trying these. I love the baked chicken taquitos and I can't wait to try a different version. I like to make a bunch up and keep them in the freezer for a quick lunch or if I'm feeling too lazy to cook dinner. These are making my to do list next week!

    I made theses and they are delicious!!! I am definitely going to make them again! Next time I will probably try to freeze some and see what happens. Thanks Nikki!

  12. Andrea

    I've made these twice. They are a huge hit with my son who is a very picky eater. I freeze the leftovers and they reheat beautifully. Thank you so much for this!

    My family LOVED these! My 2 year old and 1 year old ate more than Ive ever seen them eat! Haha. Definately one of their favorites.

    They are in the oven now- the meat mixture is so yummy it ate some out of the bowl on a chip- could even be made into a heated/warm dip for Super Bowl!
