  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • cups frozen corn
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans drained & rinsed
  • 1 can (10 oz) mild red enchilada sauce
  • 1 packet mild taco seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 box (20 oz) frozen beef & cheese taquitos


  • 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.
