Eat More Turkey is back again in partnership with Jennie-O Turkey and Switch Circle! And yes, I am on a taquito kick lately because my family is nuts over them.
You won’t go wrong with these Turkey Sausage Denver Omelet Taquitos. I was leaving on a 7-day business/social trip and I made a batch of 10 of these; wrapped them individually in plastic wrap; put them in a large bag in the refrigerator for my husband to eat while I was gone. He’s totally capable of fending for himself while I’m traveling but I like to pamper him once in a while.
For these taquitos, I used Jennie-O Turkey Sausage, eggs, cheese, and of course, onions and pepper to give them that great Denver omelet flavor. I like to serve them topped with a bit more cheese (add it when they are hot and it melts immediately) and a bowl of spicy salsa.
