Not much to chat about.... Beef and bean taquitos with cucumber salsa

Really, not a whole lot going on here.  But man, dinner was good.  It tasted alot like rolled tacos, but a whole lot healthier.

We had beef and bean and bean taquitos with cucumber salsa.

1/2 cucumber peeled and chopped
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/3 c sour cream

12 corn tortillas
16 oz can fat free refried beans
3 oz leftover roast
1/2 c salsa
1/4 c shredded cheese (we used cheddar jack)

In a medium bowl, mix together the cucumber, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and sour cream.  Put it in the fridge until you're ready to eat.

Warm beans, roast and salsa together. Set aside.

Heat a large skillet and get ready to build your taquitos. =)

Step one: Heat your tortillas in the dry pan.  
Step two: Take the warm tortilla and spread the beef/bean mixture on top.
Step three: Add some cheese.
Step four: Roll the taquito.

Repeat with all the tortillas.

Take the pan that you warmed the tortillas in and add one tsp olive oil to it.  Put three taquitos in the pan and brown them on each side. 
Set in a 200 degree oven to keep them warm.

Repeat these steps until you've fried all the the taquitos. You'll want to add another tsp of oil to the pan for each group of 3.
Serve with the cucumber salsa.
