Must I Do Everything?

So, when we started this blog I thought that my sisters were totally on board with it, but maybe they weren't. Or, maybe they are just as busy this summer as I am. I have been having camera issues again and so I haven't been bloggin the last couple months but I think I am up and running again. I am kidding about the title...I just really wish my sisters would take some time to share some of their super yummy recipes.

Here is a yummy recipes for taquitos that I got years ago. The ingredients may seem a little strange but I promise that they are super yummy for how easy they are to make. My husband loves these! Whenever we have lots of avocados around he asks if I can make some guacamole and these taquitos to go with it.

corn tortillas
canned roast beef
vegetable oil

Heat up a stack of corn tortillas wrapped in a damp kitchen towel in the microwave until soft . Open the roast beef, drain, and break up (shred) into a bowl. With your warm tortilla in hand, place some roast beef on one end and then roll up (be sure not to overstuff--a little meat goes a long way). Secure with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining roast beef and tortillas. Get your vegetable oil heated up in a pan, I use enough to cook up one side of the taquito and then flip when it is nice and brown. Drain on paper towls. Sprinkle with salt if desired and serve with homemade guacamole.

I know that the canned beef ingredient may seem a little strange but these really do have a great flavor.
