Inspired by. . . something different

I haven't posted a recipe lately. I found this one on Nikki's blog awhile ago and we really enjoyed it.

Confession: I'd already starting eating before realizing I hadn't taken any pictures!

This is my pitiful attempt at a "pretty" picture.




You can find Nikki's professional imagery and recipe HERE.

This is my version of her delicious recipe:


Baked BBQ Beef Taquitos


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 2 tsp. Penzey's shallot-pepper
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, Mexican Trio (or your choice)
  • 15 small flour tortillas


  1. Brown ground beef in a medium skillet until completely cooked through and juices run clear.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, cream cheese, shallot-pepper, garlic, salt, BBQ sauce and shredded cheese. Stir until combined. Add salt as needed to taste if you think it needs more flavor.
  4. Place a few spoonfuls of mixture into the center of flour tortilla. Roll up and place on a greased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas or until mixture is gone.
  5. Once taquitos are aligned on cookie sheet, spray the tops lightly with cooking spray.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top and edges.


Easy. Right?

These were amazing and were fabulous for lunch the next day, too!
