Baked taquitos with salsa

With our busy lives we are forever looking for ways to eat healthy without sweating in the kitchen for hours. Recently on a busy week night, I was forced to look for dinner options and to make enough food for an office potluck the next day. I modified store bought Southwestern taquitos, a Mexican staple and spiced it up with some salsa. I baked the dish like a casserole so that I had enough food for everyone plus it was healthy. I bought taquitos from Fry's however you can go for the Costco variety if making for a large group. Here is the recipe for southwestern taquito casserole.

Southwestern Taquito casserole

  • 1 bag frozen taquitos
  • 1 bottle salsa (medium or hot)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • Pam spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a casserole pan with some cooking spray. Arrange the taquitos on the pan in a layer. You can add a second layer if you run out of room, the taquitos won't stick. I usually defrost the taquitos in the oven at this stage. Pour the salsa over the taquitos. Sprinkle the cheese on the salsa layer. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes till the taquitos are hot and sizzling. Makes enough food for 8-10 people.
