Roll up to win! Taquitos are a Mexican-inspired dish in which tortillas are wrapped around a savoury filling, landing them somewhere between enchiladas and tacos. Stuff the flour tortillas with a combination of smoky-sweet ground beef, zucchini, scallions and tomato paste. Once assembled, they’re topped with generous handfuls of shredded cheddar and baked for a golden moment. Accompany the taquitos with a tomato and cucumber salsa and zesty, spiced yogurt for a touch of freshness.

Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Grate the zucchini. Zest and juice the lime. Remove the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Small-dice the tomatoes and cucumber.

Make the filling
In a large, high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the beef*; season with S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat, 4 to 6 min., until just cooked through. Transfer to a bowl. In the same pan, sauté the zucchini, 4 to 5 min., until most of the liquid has evaporated. Return the beef to the pan. Add the white bottoms of the scallions and tomato paste; season with all but a generous pinch of the spices and S&P. Sauté, 2 to 3 min., until combined.

Assemble & bake the taquitos
Drizzle a lined sheet pan with oil. Place the tortillas on a clean work surface. Divide the filling between the tortillas; tightly roll up each one around the filling. Place on the sheet pan, seam-sides down, and top with the cheese. Bake, 10 to 12 min., until the cheese has melted and the taquitos are golden brown. Let stand for at least 2 min. before serving.

Make the salsa & spiced yogurt
In a medium bowl, combine the cucumber, tomatoes, green tops of the scallions and lime juice; drizzle with oil and season with S&P. Toss well. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt and lime zest; season with the remaining spices and S&P.
