My boyfriend, Stephen, worked a double shift yesterday. So of course I thought he deserved a meal brought to him at work. But I really didn't want to have to go to the grocery store. The result was baked taquitos and spicy rice. These were so easy, it's almost embarrassing... Almost, because they were pretty good too.


8 corn tortillas
1/2 lb. ground turkey breast
Salt and pepper
1/2 c. salsa
1/2 c. shredded pepper jack cheese
Cooking spray

In skillet, brown ground turkey breast. Season with salt and pepper. Once the turkey is browned, stir in salsa. Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave for 40 seconds. Put a small amount of ground turkey and cheese down the middle of a tortilla. Wrap tortilla into tight roll. Put on greased baking sheet. Coat all taquitos with cooking spray and cook in 350 degree oven for 19-20 minutes, or until tortillas are browned and crisp.

Spicy Rice

1 c. uncooked white rice
1 c. water or chicken stock
1/2 t. ground red pepper
1 t. chili powder
1/2 t. cumin
1 t. garlic powder
Salt and pepper

Bring liquid to boil. Stir in spices and rice. Remove from heat, and cover. Let sit for 5-7 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed.
