Oven-Fried Beef Taquitos for Two
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.Advertisement
Shred zucchini using the large holes of a box grater. Squeeze dry in a clean kitchen towel (you should have about 1 cup). Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini, beef, chili powder, onion powder, cumin and salt. Cook, stirring, until beef is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat.
Spread tortillas out on a large baking sheet in two overlapping rows. Bake until hot, 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover.
Coat the baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the tortillas on a clean cutting board. Working quickly, spread a generous 1/4 cup beef mixture along the bottom third of a tortilla, sprinkle with about 1 tablespoon cheese and tightly roll into a cigar shape. Place the taquito seam-side down on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining tortillas, filling and cheese. Generously coat the top and sides of the taquitos with cooking spray.
Bake the taquitos until browned and crispy, 14 to 18 minutes.
