Turkey and Spinach Taquitos

I was watching Giada's cooking show on Saturday. She was making these taquitos for her friends and family. They looked and sounded so yummy,  I just had to make them! You can serve these to your whole family starting at 15+ months for the taquitos, and 10+ months if serving just the filling (no taquito shell).



Here's what you need for 6 to 8 servings:
1 package whole wheat tortillas
1 lb ground turkey
1 large onion minced
1 can organic black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups finely chopped organic baby spinach
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 cup sour cream
1 tbsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup shredded white or extra sharp cheddar cheese
3 tbsp olive oil
cooking oil spray

Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a large nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside. Heat 3 tbsp of oil over medium high heat in a large deep skillet. Cook the onions, salt and pepper, stirring frequently until tender, about 6 minutes. Add turkey and cumin. Cook until the turkey is cooked through, about 5 to 8 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until wilted. Remove the skillet from heat and add the beans and sour cream and set aside.

Place another skillet over medium high heat. Brush each side of the tortillas with olive oil. Cook the tortillas in batches until warm, about 30 seconds. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the filling into each tortilla and roll up into a cigar shape. Place the tortillas, seam side down, on the baking sheet and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake until the cheddar is melted and the tortillas are crisp and golden,  about 20-25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve with salsa and guacamole.  Enjoy!
