If you are like me, you struggle with putting a healthy meal on the table that everyone in your family will eat. It can be very hard for me to find things that are sophisticated enough for my husband and I, and also kid friendly enough that my children will enjoy it as well. This taquito recipe is something that you can make a million different ways and everyone will be happy. I have made these with beans, chicken, grilled vegetables, whatever I have in my fridge. I even pack these in my kid’s lunchbox if we have leftovers. I love this method because it is still really healthy, but you still get the crunch without the fat and added preservatives.
For the taquitos:
1 small red onion chopped finely
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground turkey (I use organic poultry whenever possible)
1 Tablespoon taco seasoning
1/2 cup taco sauce or salsa
10 flour tortillas
In a large saute pan over medium to high heat, saute the red onion until soft.
