Watch the cooking demonstration video at the bottom of the post to see exactly how to make these so your taquitos turn out perfectly.

Filling Ingredients

2 cans oil-free, fat-free, refried pinto beans

3 T coconut aminos

¼ cup salsa

¼ cup filtered water

A few dashes of each: salt, garlic powder, oregano, red chili pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin, chipotle chili powder

2 T nutritional yeast flakes

1 onion, peeled and diced

½ red bell pepper, seeded, cored and chopped

1-2 T jarred jalapeno juice

26 non-GMO corn tortillas made with corn and lime juice




Freshly sliced iceberg lettuce

¼ cup cilantro leaves

Put beans, coconut aminos, salsa and 1-2 T water in a large bowl and mix with a large spoon. Add herbs, spices, yeast, onion, pepper and jalapeno juice and mix again. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water if too dry to mix. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Put half of the tortillas in the oven to warm up so they don’t break when rolled. Warming time is 7 minutes in a cold oven and 5 minutes in a warmed oven.

Put a few tablespoons of filling in the center of each warmed corn tortilla. With the edge of the tortilla, fold over half the tortilla over the filling and tuck the edge underneath the filling. Continue rolling the tortilla until it looks like a rolled taco. Place the rolled tortilla, seam side down, onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Follow these steps with each tortilla, making about 12-14 tortillas at a time.

Warm the remaining corn tortillas in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove tortillas and place on a plate or cutting board.

Place the filled taquitos into the heated oven on the top rack and cook for 15 minutes. While the taquitos are cooking, finish making the rest of the taquitos.

After the taquitos have been baking for 15 minutes, turn the oven to air-fry or increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Remember to reduce the temperature to 350 degrees when baking the remaining taquitos.

Put taquitos on a large plate (we usually eat five taquitos) and top with guacamole, salsa, lettuce and cilantro leaves.
