Beef TaquitosPosted: October 14, 2009
I first got this recipe from an email loop called Friendly Freezer. I’ve received many yummy, tried and true recipes from this group. I try to find out who first submitted the recipes to give proper credit. This is daughter number two’s favorite dinner.
Recipe By: Dawn Flynn from “Friendly Freezer”
5 pounds roast beef
onion soup mix
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 1/2 cups picante sauce OR salsa OR 1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup onions, finely chopped
flour tortillas (lately I’ve been using eggroll wrappers, it makes for a lighter dish)
Cook roast in roasting pan, pouring onion soup mix dissolved in 1 cup water over it.
Cook 325 degrees for 34-38 minutes/pound
Let cool thoroughly overnight in fridge.
Finely chop roast beef ( use a food processor) and mix with cheddar cheese, garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper, picante sauce and onion in a large bowl.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Portion 1/4 cup mixture onto each flour tortilla in the lower 1/3 of the tortilla. Roll up tortilla.
Heat electric skillet to 300 degrees covering bottom with oil. Fry taquitos with open edge down to seal. Turn over fry other side. Serve hot with condiments.
