Baked Cheesy Refried Bean Taquitos

As you all know by now, I love Mexican food.  Everything about it makes my mouth water and my stomach grumble.   I love the spice combinations and bold flavors.  It doesn’t get any better than thatJ  These darlings are packed with refried beans, spices and cream cheese & baked in the oven.  Serve with a salad or some Mexican rice and you’ve got yourself a fine meal!

The pictures are similar to my previous chicken taquitos-they are SO tricky to shoot!  But they taste just as good, if not better.  Gavin and I enjoyed this vegetarian option for taquitos-always good to have it on the repertoire!

Makes about 8- 10 taquitos

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 398 ml (14oz) can refried beans
½ cup black beans, mashed
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
½ onion, minced finely

1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
8-10 (6” flour tortillas) Flour tortillas

Salsa, to serve
Sour cream, to serve
Guacamole, to serve

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, refried & black beans, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin & onion together until well combined.

Spread about 2-3 tablespoons of the refried bean mixture on the center of each tortilla. Top with cheddar cheese and roll each taquito up tightly. Place seam side down on the prepared baking sheet.

Lightly coat taquitos with cooking spray & bake for 15 minutes. Serve & enjoy!
