the stir to combine.

Add the taco seasonings.

Stir well to combine and

into a large bowl.

Stir until the cheese melts and set aside.

Place 3 corn tortilla between

paper towels and microwave

for 45 seconds on high.

Remove one tortilla from

the paper towel, keeping the

others covered. Place 2 rounded

tablespoons of meat mixture on the

front third of the tortilla.

Tightly roll up the tortilla

around the meat mixture.

After they are rolled place

  1. Hi! I am keeping this recipe. It looks like a keeper! Also, in one picture you had a white round plate with red and black swirls. I have the same set except mine has square plates. I call them my summer dishes!

  2. These look so good! And great way to meal prep for a rainy day when you don’t want to cook.

    Have you tried doing these in the Air Fryer?

    • No and only because it would take forever. One batch makes a lot and I would rather throw them all on a sheet pan and cook them all at once. My Ninja Foodi is round and it wouldn’t hold very many at a time. Thank you Ab❤️

    • They freeze so well Lillie. I freeze them on a baking sheet with waxed paper on the bottom and top. Once they are frozen individually I put a bunch in a ziploc freezer bag. They heat up in the microwave in about 1-2 minutes. It works so much easier with help. I make everything up and keep the microwave part going. Then I give my husband the tortilla from the microwave and he rolls them for me, so much quicker for me. Enjoy, the are delicious.
