  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, plus more for brushing 
  • 4 Carne Asada Steaks, thawed
  • 16-18 Mission super soft yellow corn tortillas 
  • One 8 oz package Mexican style shredded cheese 
  • 2 small jalapenos deseeded, deveined, & minced 
  • Toothpicks, optional 
  • For Serving (optional) 
  • Sour cream, salsa, guacamole, & cilantro 


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. 
  2. To a medium nonstick pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. 
  3. Add Carne Asada Steaks to pan and flip often, cooking to an internal temperature of 165°F, 7-8 minutes.
  4. Remove Carne Asada from pan and let cool 3-5 minutes before shredding. (Note: you can shred the steak using two forks or lightly chop with a knife). 
  5. To a medium mixing bowl add shredded Carne Asada, cheese, and jalapenos. 
  6. Place pan back on heat. Place a tortilla in the pan and warm 15-30 seconds to allow for more flexibility when rolling. Keep warmed tortillas wrapped in tinfoil. (Alternatively you can wrap tortillas in a damp towel and heat them in 15 second increments). 
  7. Repeat process with remaining tortillas. 
  8. Evenly fill the center of each tortilla with the Carne Asada mixture. Tightly roll, and place a toothpick through center so that it holds shape while baking. 
  9. Place assembled taquitos on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and lightly brush each taquito with olive oil. 
  10. Bake until tortillas are crisp, 15-20 minutes. 
  11. Remove from oven and place taquitos on a plate. Finish with desired toppings and serve warm.
