Don't you just love a nice warm, crispy taquito?  Well, now you don't have to buy the frozen kind because you can make them at home with ease!  :)  In fact, you won't even have to fry them!!

~15 corn tortillas  (Mine were white corn, just fyi)
1.5 c. beef or chicken, shredded
1/4 t. chili powder
1/4 t. paprika
Salt/Pepper to taste
Spray oil
 1.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Then get out the tortillas, and mix the chicken (or beef) with the chili powder, paprika, and a touch of salt and pepper.  (You can make these as spicy or not as you would like!)
 2.  Assemble the taquitos.  (See pic below.)  Lay out one tortilla, put about 1 T. of meat mixture in a line in the middle and carefully roll up.  You can then put them on a baking sheet and continue to do the rest...*
  *=but in order to prevent this (below) from possibly happening.....
I recommend securing each taquito with a toothpick as shown below.  :)
 3.  Once all taquitos have been assembled place them on a baking sheet, lightly spray them with the cooking oil spray and sprinkle a touch of salt on the tops of them.   Then bake for 12-15minutes or until golden and crispy!  :)
Enjoy!!  :)  You may serve them with salsa, guacamole and/or queso!
