Mini Beef and Cheese Tacos are totally cute and super easy to put together. A great homemade snack!
These Mini Beef and Cheese Tacos are so fun!! Have you ever seen those little frozen tacos that you can get at the market?
They’re usually by the frozen taquitos.
I always see them in the market and always think to myself, what a great snack idea. So, I decided that I had to make my own version.
These were so much easier than I thought they were going to be.
It’s based off a recipe for beef taquitos that I came across a long time ago. It’s basically the ground beef cooked and then mixed up with some salsa and seasonings.
You can use any salsa that you prefer.
I personally love green salsa, and it’s what I always have on hand in my fridge, so that’s what I tend to use. But the recipe works well with regular red salsa also.
Really, anything that you prefer and have on hand is the easiest way to go.
The tortillas I used flour because I wanted to bake these tacos. Whenever I bake corn tortillas for taquitos they tend to crack.
So I usually go for flour, they’re a bit sturdier.
The most time-consuming task of this recipe is cutting out the tortillas. But I found cutting around a drinking glass made it go really quick and easy.
To help the tortillas hold the shape of a taco while baking stick a toothpick through the taco. They come out beautifully! I wanted mine pressed together a bit more after they baked, so while they were still warm I used a butter knife and just pressed them together.
Then when the toothpick is removed, they remain perfect little tacos. You can also press any filling that spilled out while baking back into the taco.
These tacos are a perfect snack for a party or get together. They’re also really fun for the kids to help make!
Because miniature food is always more fun.
