Taquitos

The other day "Beef Taquitos" was on the menu plan. When it came time to fix dinner, however, I decided to use some leftover barbecued ribs instead of ground beef. I just shredded the pork, added a bit of salsa and cheese, rolled them up in the tortillas (large ones instead of small ones) and baked them. They were fabulous! However, the original recipe is delicious as well, so I'll go ahead and post it below. Beef Taquitos

1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 pound ground beef
1/2 cup salsa
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
10 6" tortillas
1/2 cup Cheddar or Jack cheese

Brown beef with onion and garlic. (Remember you can always use wheat/meat instead!) Stir in salsa and seasonings; simmer for 10 minutes. Top each tortilla with 1/4 cup beef mixture. Sprinkle with some cheese. Roll up and place seam side down on foil lined baking sheet. Brush lightly with oil if desired. Bake 8-12 minutes at 400°. If desired, serve with additional salsa and sour cream.
