This healthy beef taquitos recipe for two 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.
