I am by no means a vegetarian (and apparently my husband is not either as this was not his favorite dinner) but I did have my vegetarian sister, Emily, over for dinner to give these a try and her and I both approved. Abby approved also!
Vegetarian Black Bean Taquitos
a recipe adapted from Our Best Bites
1 14 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 tbsp salsa
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 10 oz box frozen spinach, thawed, drained, and chopped
3/4 cup frozen corn
1 diced red pepper
1 cup reduced fat Monteery Jack cheese
12 corn tortillas
guacamole and sour cream for dipping
Preheat oven to 425. Place a piece of foil on a cookie sheet and spray it with non-stick spray.
Place 3/4 cup beans in food processor or Magic Bullet with salsa, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, and lime juice. Mix until smooth. Place mixture into a bowl and add all other ingredients, except tortillas, and mix together.
Warming up a few corn tortillas at a time,
place a couple heaping tablespoons of the mixture onto each one and roll them up.
Place the taquitos a few inches apart on the prepared baking sheet and cook for 20-25 minutes or until edges are crispy.
*I only have the one picture. :( Apparently they were too good to waste time taking more!
These make great leftovers too.
