Shredded Beef Taquitos

shredded beef taquitos

Taquitos are one of my favorite frozen junk foods. I don’t purchase them very often but I do like having a batch in the freezer of homemade ones to curb any cravings I may have.

This recipe uses the chipotle and onion shredded beef recipe that I’ve already posted to give the filling a good flavor. I also used fajita sized flour tortillas since my family has a preference for taquitos made with flour tortillas over ones made with corn.
