We absolutely love making taquitos at our house! Taquito is Spanish for small taco. They are rolled, then baked or fried with simple fillings like meat, cheese and beans.

Taquitos are a great way to use up leftovers in the fridge and they are so quick to prep and make.

These tasty Cheesy Beef and Bean Taquitos have that classic tex mex flavor that most of us love. Use freshly cooked taco meat, leftover taco meat and most any cheese or beans you have on hand will work.

You can make these in an air fryer or oven, either way dinner is on the table in less than 15 minutes. They are kid friendly too! 

I guarantee you'll never want to buy the frozen kind again after making them homemade.

Recipe tips:


  • If your tortillas have been refrigerated and are stiff, microwave them for a few seconds so they soften and are easier to roll.
  • Make sure to lay your taquitos seam side down so they stay rolled.
  • These taquitos can be frozen. Prep as directed and bake in the oven for 6 minutes. Cool completely, then place into freezer bags. Freeze for up to 2 months. To reheat, bake in the oven for 8 minutes or microwave until heated through.
