Black Bean Taquitos

Black Bean Taquitos

This is a healthy version of Mexican taquitos, a dish that consist of corn tortillas that are filled with shredded beef or chicken and then fried.

Here is what you need for the recipe:

1 can of refried black beans ( I like the ones that have lime added. You can use any type of refried beans)
1 package of corn tortillas
Olive oil (optional)

I usually put my tortillas in a warm oven or in the microwave just to warm them. I also warm the beans before making the taquitos- this can also be done in the microwave.

Warm a skillet/frying pan over medium heat. You can add some olive oil if you want, but it's not necessary.

Take one corn tortilla and place some of the refried beans near the outer edge on one side of the tortilla and then roll the tortilla up slowly and place in the heated pan, seam side down so that the tortilla doesn't come un-rolled. Once that side has cooked for a few minutes then flip the taquito over to evenly cook on other sides.

Repeat for as many taquitos as you want to make. I find it easier to make several at a time and then line them up in the pan together to help keep any of them from coming undone. These could probably be cooked in the oven also, I haven't tried it yet though.

Serve with your favorite salsa or guacamole.
