Prior to heating the tortillas, I lightly coated them with olive oil and eliminated spraying them with cooking spray. It worked out great!
Oven-Fried Beef Taquitos
From EatingWell: November/December 2013
This healthy beef taquitos recipe calls for baking instead of deep-frying, making the taquitos substantially healthier than what you’d get at a restaurant. One order of these little deep-fried, rolled-up tacos at a restaurant can set you back almost 1,000 calories and 60 grams of fat! Don’t worry if some of the taquitos crack open while baking—they’re still crispy and delicious. Serve with your favorite salsa, guacamole and reduced-fat sour cream.

My husband and I loved this recipe! I changed it a little and used ground chicken breast and only 2 TBS of chili powder. This is going to be our Friday Night Mexican meal instead of going to a Mexican restaurant for sure!
This is a simple dish. Even my kids liked it. I think the amount of chili powder is incorrect. Three tablespoons was way too much. Wonder if it should be teaspoons instead??? Will make again for sure, just with a lot less chili powder.
