Healthy Beef Taquitos recipe

Healthy Beef Taquitos

6 ounces steak fillets
2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
1 cup finely chopped brown button mushroom
1⁄2 cup finely chopped onion
1⁄4 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
1⁄4 cup pico de gallo, drained
8 (6 inch) corn tortillas

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Season beef with 1 teaspoons taco seasoning, and cook for 4 minutes.

Flip beef, and add mushrooms and onion to the skillet. Sprinkle veggies with remaining 1 teaspoons taco seasoning. Stirring veggies occasionally, cook for about 4 more minutes, until beef is cooked through and veggies have softened.

Remove skillet from heat and, if needed, blot veggies dry. Transfer beef to a medium bowl. Shred with two forks -- one to hold the meat in place, and the other to scrape across and shred it. (It's a little difficult to shred, but it's worth it!).

To the bowl, add veggies, cheese, and drained pico de gallo. Mix well.

Place tortillas between 2 damp paper towels. Microwave for 1 minute, or until warm and pliable.

Evenly distribute and spread beef mixture among tortillas. Tightly roll up each into a tube, and place on the baking sheet, seam side down. Secure with toothpicks, if needed.

Bake until crispy, 14 - 16 minutes. (Don't worry if they crack and "explode" a little!).
