Vegetarian Taquitos

My husband and I have been hankering for some yummy Mexican style food. Obviously, it's never all that authentic, but it does the trick for us :) I got to go to lunch yesterday with a new friend at this delicious burrito place called Bandit Burrito..if you live near Des Moines it's a must try! Anyway, I decided to fix our Mexican food with some vegetarian flair!

Cook veggie ground for 3-5 minutes.

Place mixture into tortilla shells.

Place in baking dish at 325 for 10-12 minutes.


1 cup veggie ground ( I use morningstar brand)
1 Tbl olive oil
1/2 can black beans
red pepper flakes, cumin, and salt/pepper to taste
4 -6 tortilla shells
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 325. Place a medium skillet over medium heat and add in olive oil. Cook veggie ground with red pepper flakes, cumin, salt, and pepper for about 3-5 minutes, until mostly unfrozen. Add in beans and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Place cheese and cooked mixture into the tortillas and roll up. Place in baking dish until lightly golden on the edges (about 10-12 minutes). We served with salsa (which my dad made himself with fresh veggies from his garden..soo good!), but guacamole and sour cream would have been great too!" target="_blank">

Cheerios and Lattes


  1. Enchilada sauce poured over the top before the grated cheese and then baked makes a killer change from the regular yummy roll-ups. I prefer the red sauce but green pleases many the palate.
