- 1 cup corn kernels
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup minced red onion
- 3 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
- 3 tablespoons minced pickled jalapenos
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
- 3⁄4 cup Mexican blend cheese, finely shredded
- 12 (6-inch) corn tortillas
- Kosher salt
- Heat 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot, about 2 minutes. Add corn and cook, stirring occasionally, until kernels begin to brown and pop, 3 to 5 minutes; transfer corn to medium bowl.
- Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in the now-empty skillet over medium heat until shimmering; add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and chili powder and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute; stir in beans and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Return corn to skillet and toss to combine; gently press mixture with spatula to lightly crush black beans.
- Transfer mixture a medium bowl, stir in jalapeños and lime juice.
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
- Warm tortillas according to package directions until soft and pliable. Spoon 2 tablespoons of filling and 1 tablespoon of cheese onto the lower third of each tortilla and roll tightly. Place seam side-down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
- Use remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil to brush the tops of the taquitos lightly, and sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake 14-17 minutes, or until the tortillas are crisp and golden-brown. Serve with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.
