Tired of the same old snacks on game day?
Score big at your next party with some finger-licking good Latin finger food.
When it comes to food from south of the border, taquitos are right up there at the top of the list. Easy to eat, full of flavor, versatile, supremely dippable and great for large crowds. But, we know what you are thinking: taquitos, like a lot of other Latin cuisine, are loaded with lots of fat, salt, oil and other preservatives.
In most cases you would be right – but not with this recipe!
Unlike other taquito recipes, these babies are baked instead of fried in fatty oils. Combine that with lean ground beef, protein-packed pinto beans and zucchini – this recipe’s secret weapon – and you have the makings of a batch of low fat, high flavor taquitos! It’s a win/win whatever way you want to look at it!
In addition to its nutritional value, zucchini helps bring some unique sweet flavor and firm texture to this dish that you have never experienced before! These taquitos really are one of a kind.
And like we said, they are perfect for dipping, so don’t just serve them alone! Whip up some queso or guacamole, scoop out some sour cream or make some homemade salsa! Randall Beans has some superb salsa recipes to choose from like our Southwestern Bean Salsa and our Crisp and Crunchy Corn Salsa.
This recipe makes about 20 taquitos, so a little can go a long way! Adjust the recipe for larger or smaller portions.
