This recipe makes about 10-12 taquitos. At 3 per serving, that’s about 4 meals for the week!

Taquitos are usually fried, but I am a not a fried food kind of gyal. Particularly because it adds a lot of extra calories, and I like to keep my fat intake under 35% of my total diet – so I would rather get this fat from cheese rather than oil because cheese also contains protein and calcium which are great for strong muscles and bones.

1 pepper, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
Jalapeño peppers, chopped (optional)
1 onion, chopped
