Baked black bean taquito recipe
Yields 6 taquitos
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil (you could also use olive oil)
- 1/2 cup rinsed black beans
- 1/2 cup frozen corn
- 1/3 cup chopped red bell peppers
- 1/3 cup chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 6 medium flour tortillas
- 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a large skillet add avocado oil. Heat over medium heat until hot. Add black beans, corn, bell pepper, onion, cilantro, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Cook for about 8 minutes until vegetables are starting to soften but do not let them brown.
- Add in garlic and let cook for a few more moments until fragrant.
- Take pan off the heat and get ready to fill flour tortillas.
- Lay out tortillas, divide filling equally between the tortillas, top with equal amount of cheese and roll tightly. Lay the taquitos, seam side up, onto a parchment lined baking sheet and stick a toothpick into the taquito so it will stay closed.
- Lightly brush a little oil onto the tortilla so it will crisp.
- Cook for about 15-20 minutes until crispy on the outside and cheese is melted on the inside.
- Serve warm and dip into avocado sour cream dip.
