  1. Gather all ingredients.

  4. Add black beans and salsa and stir to combine. Taste and then add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.
  5. Remove mixture from pan and set aside. Keep pan on the stove for the eggs.
  6. Scramble the eggs in the same pan. Cook to your desired texture. Remove from stove and get ready to roll your taquitos.
  7. Lay your tortillas on a flat surface. Put a heaping tablespoon full of the veggie/bean mixture down the left side of the tortilla. Top with another tbsp. or two of egg, then sprinkle with cheese. Roll from the stuffed side to the empty side, rolling tightly as you go. Put on baking sheet seam side down.
  8. Repeat with all 10 tortillas.
  9. Spray tops of taquitos with cooking spray then bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and crispy on the edges.
  10. Eat immediately and serve with salsa and sour cream or see instructions below for flash freezing.
  11. You can also freeze the baked taquitos as well. To reheat, remove from freeze the night before and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
