Bean and Beef Taquitos with Avocado Sauce
Making taquitos is easy for restaurant cooks with access to loads of braised meat and a deep-fryer. Our goal was to make them easy for the home cook, too.
Why This Recipe Works
Adding mashed pinto beans to the seasoned ground beef filling and rolling the taquitos tightly helps the filling hold together and absorb a minimum of oil during frying. Sealing the edge with egg wash offers extra insurance, and frying in a mere cup of oil (so the seam side will come in contact with the bottom of the pan), prevents the taquitos from unrolling as they cook. Our creamy avocado sauce comes together in only minutes.
