Bean & Chorizo Taquitos

Bean & Chorizo Taquitos 1Each week I strive to plan our weekly meals out, some of the most requested meals from my family are Mexican-inspired recipes. My husband is from Mexico and was raised on nightly meals that almost always included beans, rice, and tortillas so anytime I can find a new way to incorporate some of his favorite foods into new meal ideas it’s a win! These Bean + Chorizo Taquitos made with the new Herdez® Instant Refried Beans are a new family fave.

Bean & Chorizo Taquitos 5We’ve tried a ton of refried bean recipes both made from scratch and pre-made versions, so when I tell you that these NEW Herdez Instant Refried Beans are some of the best I’ve made at home I’m not kidding. They deliver a restaurant-quality experience with superior taste and texture in just minutes. Seriously, they are ready in 5 minutes! They are creamy and come in some amazing flavors:  Traditional, Jalapeno, Chorizo, and my personal favorite Queso. Did I mention they are gluten free!?!

Begin by shredded some pepper jack or monterey jack cheese and set aside. Saute diced onion in a large skillet, once the onions become slightly translucent you can brown the ground chorizo in the same skillet. While the chorizo is browning in a separate pan begin cooking your Herdez Instant Refried Beans by following the package instructions. Once the chorizo is cooked and the beans are ready you can combine the two together, you can also stir in your shredded cheese. Combining these will help keep everything from falling apart when rolling your taquitos. Adding the cheese to the mixture will keep it from melting completely out of your taquitos. Fill your tortillas with the bean, chorizo, and cheese mixture being sure to not overstuff. Roll the tortilla and place on a baking sheet.
