Homemade taquitos?

The other day I was trying to figure out what to do with some leftovers. I had taco-seasoned ground beef that we had used for taco salad. I also had a bunch of corn tortillas and some shredded sharp cheddar somewhere. SO, I decided to make taquitos. I slapped butter on one side of the corn tortilla and then threw it on the hot skillet to sizzle for a minute. Then I loaded it up with the beef and cheddar. I found it difficult to roll it up like a taquito without burning off my fingerprints so I just folded it in half like a taco. I waited 'til one side of the tortilla started to brown and then I flipped it and browned the other sided. After removing from the pan, I added whatever we had on hand. Onions, cilantro, tomatoes, sour cream. They were delicious and even the kids LOVED them! Here's a picture of two taquitos getting to know each other in the skillet:

Hey there, come here often?

No, it's my first time. ...Is it getting HOT?

::chuckles::Yeah, I hear that a lot. I seem to have that effect on the ladies.

::hmph::Your cheese is leaking...

Uh, yeah, uh, I meant to do that.

And here they are after they've gotten to know each other a little better. They make quite the pair, don't they?
