Turkey Taquitos

Corn tortillas
Turkey meat, cooked and shredded (you can also use chicken, ground turkey or ground beef)
1 pkg Taco seasoning mix (or use this homemade version)
1 cup Turkey broth
**Optional add-in's: diced onion, can of green chilis, can of tomatoes drained, shredded cheese

Soften tortillas in a skillet of oil over medium heat and drain on paper towels.

Warm turkey meat in a separate skillet on medium-high heat and add in taco seasoning and 1 cup turkey broth. Cook until all is incorporated and warmed through. Add in any other ingredients (sauteed onion, green chilis, drained tomatoes, etc), except for cheese. Warm through and remove from heat.

Spoon 1/2 to 3/4 Tbsp meat mixture onto lower 1/3 of tortilla and add a pinch of shredded cheese (if you are using cheese). Roll tortilla tightly and place on a cookie sheet.

Continue until all tortillas are rolled.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, until crispy and warm. Top with lettuce, cheese, guacamole, sour cream and salsa. Or use the taquitos to dip in sour cream/salsa/guacamole.

*You can flash freeze prior to baking (place taquitos on a cookie sheet in the freezer), then transfer them to a ziploc bag back in the freezer until ready to use.
