Ingredients

  • 12 corn tortillas gluten free
  • 1 16 oz can fat free refried beans
  • 4 tsp diced green chiles from can
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 1 small red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 small green bell pepper sliced
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Begin by slicing the onions and peppers. Bring a skillet to medium high heat and sauté them until soft. About 10 minutes.

  2. In the meantime, add in your whole can of refried beans to a medium bowl. To that, add in your diced green chiles and spices, mix. If you want something even quicker and have taco seasoning on hand, you can add in 2TBSP of taco seasoning to the beans and leave out all the other spices. It will work just as well!

  3. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit. 

  4. Take one corn tortilla and spread on about 1-2 TBSP of beans. (Be careful not to overstuff it) Add a few slices of the sautéed onions and peppers. Roll up and stick a toothpick in them to help them stay together. Place it seam-side down on your baking tray.

  5. Continue filling and rolling the rest of the taquitos until you run out of the mixture or tortilla shells.

  6. Bake at 425 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, or until crispy and lightly browned on the top.

  7. Serve while warm with taco sauce, salsa, or guacamole! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you want a really crispy shell, you can brush on some olive oil or spray olive oil on the top for an extra crisp. It is not necessary though.
