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!
