Beef Taquito’s

4-5 cups cooked, chopped roast beef
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained
2 cups of cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
1 1/5 cups salsa
30 tortillas
Oil for frying

Slow cook roast 6-8 hours until it shreds and then chop finely. In a large bowl, mix beef, beans, corn, cheese and salsa. In a frying pan, heat oil to medioum heat. One at a time, using tongs,dip tortillas into hot oil for 5-10 seconds just until it begins to bubble slightly. (You may need to use a spatula to get it out of the oil so it doesn’t tear.) Set aside on paper towels. (Do only about 12 at a time; fill, roll, repeat). Fill each tortilla with about 1/4 cup of the mixture. Roll tightly and place seam side down on a cookie sheet. Bake 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. If freezing, fill a cookie sheet and flash freeze. When firm, place several in a gallon size freezer bags. To reheat, bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes (from frozen) until heated through.
