Heat oven to 375°. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked rice, frozen corn, black beans, enchilada sauce, taco seasoning, and 1 cup of the cheese. Stir together until combined. Evenly spread this into the prepared pan.
Layer 20 frozen beef taquitos over the rice mixture in the pan. * The box comes with 21 taquitos so you will have 1 extra taquito.
Cook for 30-35 minutes or until the taquitos are crispy and a nice golden brown color.
Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup cheese over the taquitos and put it back in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Just until the cheese is melted.
Serve with all your favorite taco toppings.We feel that sour cream is a must! We also like chopped toamtoes and shredded lettuce with ours.
Enchilada Sauce : You can use green or red enchilada sauce. The green mild enchilada sauce is more milder in taste so if you're worried about spice then use green enchilada sauce.Cheese : Use any variety of shredded cheese you want. I use Colby Jack cheese, but another great choice is Cheddar Cheese or Pepper Jack cheese if you want spicy. Serving Size : Serving size, and nutrition information, is for 2 beef taquitos + the rice mix that is underneath. Toppings are not included and are additional. The nutrition information includes using white rice in the recipe. Recipe has been updated & republished with more helpful text and better pictures in March 2021. Recipe is the same.
