Baked Taquitos - Super Easy 4 Ingredients - gluten free and top 8 allergen free *vegan option

Simple, healthy and cheap!

This is a 4 ingredient (minus spices) go-to dinner that everyone in our family loves. One part of it that I really love is that I'm sneaking in beans that my picky eater doesn't even notice.  

It can be very universal in the fact you can sub in or out the ingredients, depending on what you prefer or have on hand.  In this recipe I use ground turkey, but beef, chicken or pork is just as good.  The beans are refried, but I have used black and kidney too.  We need to use a Allergy Free "cheese", but you can use the real stuff if tolerated!  You can even switch out the corn tortilla if needed.  Making them a baked Taquito helps with keeping them healthy, quick to make and less of a mess to clean up in the end. 

I keep this recipe very simplified since cooking whole foods from scratch every night can be daunting!  It almost feels like cheating to me~  Adding in onion, peppers, olives, corn, cilantro, avacados and any other delicious ingredient would kick it up even more- the skies the limit if you want to take the time.  But you won't be disappointed with just the basics!  

Another plus of this recipe is that it makes a large serving amount which can be used for leftovers or put in the freezer and reheated in the oven when needed.  (I have doubled and tripled this before just so I had freezer food for the future)  The recipe ends up being pretty cost effective since it uses such basic and few ingredients.
