One of my favorite things to order at a Mexican restaurant is taquitos, just like these shredded beef taquitos. I love the contrast of the tender meat filling with crisp corn tortilla.

This filling for these taquitos only takes a few ingredients, but it is full of flavor. It all cooks in the slow cooker to produce a tender, flavorful beef filling. It is perfect when wrapped in that crisp crunchy corn tortilla.

Enjoy these topped with salsa and sour cream and eaten with a fork. Or eat them by hand dipped in guacamole. No matter how you eat them, you will love them.

Shredded Beef Taquitos


Units Scale
  • 1 lb beef stew meat cut in 1-2 inch chunks
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 2 chopped jalapeños (I remove the seeds for less heat)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 dozen corn tortillas
  • 1 dozen toothpicks
  • canola oil for frying
  • desired toppings such as salsa, guacamole, and sour cream


  1. In a slow cooker, add beef, tomatoes, jalapeños, and salt. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours. Shed the beef and mix together
  2. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the shredded beef mixture to a large skillet. Sear the beef over medium heat until any liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.
  3. Wrap two stack of 6 tortillas in a packet of aluminum foil and put in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, until heated through.
  4. Divide the beef filling among the tortillas. Tightly roll up each tortilla and secure with a toothpick.
  5. Heat about 1/2 inch of canola oil to 350 degrees in a pan over medium heat. Working in batches, fry the taquitos until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel. Remove toothpicks.
  6. Serve taquitos with desired toppings. serves 4-6.
