Baked Ham & White Bean Taquitos
Recipe type: Entree
Total time: 
Serves: 6
Baked taquitos with beans, rosemary, garlic, and ham are an easy, healthy weeknight dinner or freezer meal!
  • 1 can (19 oz) white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and halved
  • 3 stalks fresh rosemary, leaves removed from stem
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (+ more if needed)
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • 2½ cups cooked, chopped ham
  • 1½ cups Monterey Jack or mozzarella cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 10-12 small (6") tortillas or 6-8 large (8-10") tortillas
  1. Combine beans, garlic, and rosemary in food processor. Pulse to combine, then blend on low until as smooth as you like, drizzling in olive oil to bring it together and reach desired consistency.
  2. Transfer mixture to large bowl and stir in lemon juice, ham, and cheese. Taste and add seasoning if desired - with the ham I found no salt was needed, but for the vegetarian version some salt and pepper are both good additions.
  3. Divide mixture evenly over centres of tortillas, roll tortillas up tightly, and place seam-side down on foil-lined baking sheet. They can be frozen at this point or baked: to bake, preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, spray taquitos lightly with baking spray, and bake for 15 minutes (increase time by 5-10 minutes if baking from frozen).
