Beef Taquitos

My two young adult kids who have cystic fibrosis are big fans of my taquitos. It's always a fight for who gets the last one. I make taquitos by the 3 dozen batch so there are always leftovers to grab a handful for a quick snack. They are just as good eaten cold, straight from the fridge. Or, microwaving them works perfectly well.
