I think you’ll like this recipe for a couple of reasons. It takes a short amount of time to assemble, and you can either choose to make a big or small batch and freeze the rest if needed.

I used low-carb tortillas in this recipe, which were a great swap. They’re about 12 total grams of carbs, but fiber-rich, which helps reduce glucose spikes.

How to make Low Carb Beef Tenderloin Taquitos

Cube your beef into 1-inch pieces and then season with your seasoning of choice (I use nature’s seasons here).

In a medium, nonstick skillet, heat avocado oil on medium-high heat. Add beef tenderloin to skillet and cook through to medium-well. Set aside cooked beef.

Prep taquitos by spreading refried beans on the entire taquito, and sprinkling on Mexican cheese and beef. Roll them tightly, and place them seam side down.

Add 1 inch of oil to a skillet, and heat on medium-high heat. Add the taquitos to the skill, and cook until light brown and crispy on all sides, about 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to crowd the pan, and work in batches to keep the oil hot.

Notes

  • If you make the full batch of 6, you can roll the remaining taquitos in saran wrap, and place them into a freezer bag in the freezer for 1 month. To reheat, pop them into the microwave for 1 minute. You can also rewarm them in a 400ºF oven for 10 minutes to get the tortilla crisp again.
