Homemade Beef and Cheese Taquitos

AKA Flauta. Sarah and I are huge taquito eaters.  The ones that you buy in the frozen food section.  So, we decided to make our own Homemade Beef and Cheese Taquitos, and although I need a little more practice rolling them smaller, they tasted great.  Better than the frozen kind, of course.

We made some cheese dip to go with these, but you could skip that if you like.  We don’t always have cheese dip with ours, but most of the time we do. Dip the taquitos, we do.  I love to have sour cream, guacamole and cheese all in one bite.  Try dipping them in Ranch, too.

Homemade Beef and Cheese Taquitos

To make the cheese dip, just dice up 12 oz of velveeta cheese. Add 1/4 can of Rotel and microwave for about 1 1/2 – 2 minutes.  This makes a small batch.  If you like to make a bigger batch, our ratio is 1 package (32 oz) of velveeta to 1 can of Rotel.

Next time I make these, I’m going to use corn tortillas instead of flour.  Which would you prefer?  Flour tortillas or Corn tortillas?

Need some dip to go with that?
