Baked Beef Taquitos

Baked Beef Taquitos - adapted from Our Best Bites

 1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 tbs chili powder
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
Monterey jack cheese, shredded
corn tortillas
kosher salt

Brown ground beef over medium heat.  Drain. Stir in chili powder, Cajun seasoning, and garlic powder.  

Working with a few tortillas at a time, heat tortillas in the microwave between damp paper towels for 30 seconds.  Place 2 - 3 tbs of beef  onto the lower third of each tortilla, leaving 1/2" from the edges.  Sprinkle with cheese.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Roll up tightly and place seam side down on baking sheet, making sure tortillas are not touching.  Spray the tops with cooking spray and sprinkle lightly with kosher salt.   Bake for 15 - 20 minutes, or until crisp and the ends start to get golden brown.  Serve with sour cream or salsa.
