Taquitos are pretty easy to make and can easily be made the day before and reheated when you want to serve them. Just reheat in a 350 degree F. oven for 10 to 20 minutes or until they are heated through.
Serve these on a bed of lettuce and serve with guacamole http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWqEpqEBcRk, sour cream and salsa http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMGATFCVtdo.
I show you two ways to make them, fried and oven baked. I personally think the fried ones taste a little better but both are very good. Especially with that guacamole.
1 lb. ground beef (grass fed if possible)
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup water
2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
2 to 3 Tbsp. taco seasoning http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72XMMUzsYOc
Queso Fresco or any cheese you like, crumbled or shredded
Sauce onion in olive oil for 5 to 7 minutes over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute longer.
Add the ground beef and cook until there is no pink remaining. Drain excess oil. Add the the taco seasoning and the water. Simmer until water cooks off.
Heat 1/4 inch vegetable oil in a small (9 inch) fry pan over medium heat. Dip two tortillas at a time in the hot oil with tongs until softened, about 4 to 5 seconds. Drain the tortillas on a paper towel covered tray.
Soften about 8 to 10 tortillas and let them cool. When you can handle them, add a couple of tablespoons of beef to the tortilla and top with cheese. Roll into a cylinder and use tooth picks to seal the ends.
Cook 2 taquitos at a time in the hot oil seam side down until golden brown and then turn them over to cook on second side.
Remove from oil and cool on paper towels.
To Bake taquitos:
Roll taquitos and place on a cookie sheet. Brush melted butter on the tops and sides of taquitos and place in a 450 degree oven for 12 minutes. You can also lower the temperature to 375 and cook for a longer period of time. Cook until they crisp up and turn golden brown.
