Baked Taquitos

Just in case you needed another reason to make the pulled pork tacos, you've got to try these! I used some of the leftover pork and added a little cheese to make these baked taquitos. I saw the idea here, but figured it would work using my own filling - and it did! So here are the basics:

taquito filling of your choice
corn tortillas
cooking spray

Heat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.

I found that doing one tortilla at a time was best, but you need to work fast. Put one tortilla in the microwave for 15 seconds. If you find they are cracking when you roll them, or are coming unrolled right away, just try heating them longer or try covering with a damp paper towel.

Place 2-3 T of your filling on the lower third of the tortilla, keeping it about 1/2 inch from the edges. Then roll it up tightly and place seam-side down on the tray. Continue this process with the rest of your tortillas, making sure they don't touch each other.

Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle lightly with salt. Place pan in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and the ends start to get golden brown.
