Creamy Corn and Pepper Taquitos

Corn taquitos


Today is Secret Recipe Club reveal day! This month, I was assigned to Lindsay’s blog, Life and Kitchen. Lindsay hails from Pittsburgh and is the mom of a sweet little girl. Her blog has a great mix of sweet and savory recipes, all with amazing photos, so you can imagine that it made it very difficult to choose just one! Head over to Lindsay’s blog to see all the amazing recipes she has!

Mexican food is my favorite kind of food. Enchiladas are my typical go-to Mexican meal, with burritos being a close second. Taquitos, however, are something I’ve never had. To be honest, this recipe reminded me of mini enchiladas, minus the sauce and cheese on top. Something about the size of these taquitos made them so fun to eat! They would be a perfect party snack, but also make for a delicious dinner. Dunk them in your favorite salsa and enjoy! 

2 teaspoons Olive Oil
1/2 Yellow Onion, diced
1/4 cup Red Bell Pepper, diced
1/4 cup Green Bell Pepper, diced
1/2 cup Corn (I cut it off of 2 cobs, but you can use frozen)
5 ounces Cream Cheese
1/4 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/4 teaspoon Chili Powder
1/4 teaspoon Cumin
8 Small Tortillas (I used 11)
Cooking Spray

Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and peppers and sauté until soft.  Add the corn, chili powder, and cumin and sauté for an additional minute. Add the cream cheese and cheddar cheese, stirring until melted. Adjust seasonings as necessary. Spread some of the mixture into the center of a tortilla and roll tightly. Place the tortilla seam side down onto a baking sheet and continue with remaining tortillas and mixture. Spray the tortillas with cooking spray. Bake at 425 degrees for about 12-15 minutes, or until lightly brown and crispy. **Taquitos freeze well, too!

These sound delicious and I love the fact that they are not fried.

Baking instead of frying. Wonderful! Great SRC pick!

Yum, these sound great! Creamy and cheesy and full of flavor!!

Mexican food is pretty much my favorite food too. These sound great!!

I love Mexican food too and had that last weekend. I've never tried making taquitos though so I'll have to give these a go.Love the sound of the creamy corn - yum! Great SRC pick!

I've never heard of taquitos before, but they look and sound very cute and very delicious. I think you're right these would be a great party snack - I can easily imagine everyone fighting over them.

this looks very interesting. I will have to try it. But these are not really taquitos. Taquitos are tightly rolled tortilla fried and usually served with a salsa or avocado sauce

Great SRC pick this month!! They look WONDERFUL!! I've never made taquitos at home before, but keep thinking about it. This looks like a terrific recipe.

These are perfect for me! I love everything about them. I'm always on the hunt for easy, quick, but really good things to make for lunch, and this is perfect! Great pick this month.
