Vegetarian Baked Taquitos are one of the most fun recipes you’ll ever make! I mean, what’s not to like about them? Corn tortillas filled with a ton of vegetarian ingredients like beans and cheese to create a secret filling inside a crispy outer shell.
I first made taquitos for the Weelicious cookbook stuffed with chicken and cheese, but when I don’t have chicken on hand and I want to save a few bucks I make them with cooked beans instead. You still get a punch of protein in every bite, but they’re better for my vegetarian son. The truth is he’s not a huge bean lover, but inside these Vegetarian Baked Taquitos he will eat five plus at a sitting.
They have been so popular on the site that I even started adding the recipe for families subscribing to One Potato, my organic family friendly meal kid delivery kit company. The feedback has been that they’re a huge hit with the kids and adults! We serve them with salsa and guacamole, so you can have fun using your hands to dip and munch them up.
If you’ve never made them before, watch this Vegetarian Baked Taquitos video to take in a few quick tricks to perfecting the recipe. I guarantee you’ll make them time and time again!
