12 taquitos


  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 2 cups cooked white rice

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 ½ tablespoons chopped red bell pepper

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic

  • 12 (6 inch) corn tortillas, or more to taste

  • 2 cups salsa

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease.

  3. Add cooked rice, water, bell pepper, and garlic to the beef in the skillet; stir and cook until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Spoon onto tortillas and roll to close. Place taquitos tightly against each other in an 8x12-inch baking pan. Pour salsa over and top with Cheddar cheese.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use brown rice instead of white rice, and garlic powder instead of fresh garlic.
