Vegetarian Black Bean Taquitos

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.
