My kids requested steak tacos tonight. I didn’t have steak or taco shells, but I did just watch Giada At Home and remembered her turkey taquito recipe. I altered it to fit my family’s request, made it a tad healthier, and this is what we came up with.
My daughter and son loved this crunchy and healthy dinner! They had fun dipping the taquitos in salsa and guacamole. It was a fun change to taco night. Get messy! Have fun! And eat healthy!
Ground Sirloin with Spinach and Black Bean Taquitos Recipe
1 lbs ground sirloin
about 6-8 corn tortillas
2 cups baby spinach- chopped
½ onion- chopped
1 can black beans- drained and rinsed
½ cup low fat cheddar cheese
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp hamburger seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2.) In a sauté pan on medium high heat, add olive oil for 30 seconds. Then add chopped onion and caramelize for about 5-7 minutes.
3.) Add ground sirloin to the onion and sprinkle on hamburger seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. Chop meat and stir until meat browns.
4.) Pour in black beans, and using a fork, mash the black beans right into the pan.
5.) Add spinach and a little more salt and pepper to taste. Blend until spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.
6.) In a separate pan, warm to medium heat and spray with olive oil spray. Warm tortillas on both sides for 30 seconds.
7.) Fill each tortilla with the meat mixture at one end and roll so the tortilla is completely wrapped where both ends are overlapping.
8.) Spray a 9x13 baking dish and side by side place rolled up tacos. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.
9.) Bake taquitos for 25-30 minutes.
