Recipe Swap: Bean and Cheese Taquitos

Bean and Cheese Taquitos
The theme of this week's swap is a Vegetarian Recipe. I had many wonderful recipes to choose from Sweet Beginnings, but I instantly knew which recipe I would be making: bean and cheese taquitos. I knew Miss F would love these. She devoured three for dinner and then requested more for her lunch box the next day. I cut them in half to fit in her Thermos container and she was thrilled to have them in her lunch.  I will be completely honest, I didn't eat any.  Beans are not my thing, but as much as I dislike them, Miss F loves beans.  These are going into the repertoire for the nights where I am cooking something I know she won't enjoy.  I used leftover refried beans from Pappasitos instead of canned, but other than that, I kept to the recipe.  I served them with guacamole, but Miss F preferred hers plain.  And she ate them sideways, silly girl.  Thanks to A Taste of Home Cooking for hosting!
Bean & Cheese Taquitos

1 can refried beans
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
1 lime
2 cups shredded cheese (such as cheddar, Mexican blend, etc)
Flour tortillas (16-20)
Cooking spray
Sea salt for topping

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix the refried beans, black beans, cilantro, and spices. Then add the zest from the lime and the juice from half of the lime and stir. Mix in the cheese. Put about two tablespoons of filling lengthwise into each tortilla. Spread it out into a strip and roll up the tortilla around it. Place it seam side down on a baking sheet. Repeat with all of the tortillas. Lightly spray the tortillas with cooking spray and immediately sprinkle with sea salt. Bake until the edges are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Serve warm with your choice of dipping sauce (salsa, sour cream, etc.)

You don't like beans? What a bummer - they're so good and good for you. I love the sound of these and I know my daughter would love them, too.

I'm so amused at her eating them sideways. I'm not a huge bean fan either, but there's enough cheese in this recipe that I could be convinced they're not in there. :
