Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray 9 x 13″ baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Heat large skillet over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add turkey, and brown and crumble meat for about 5 minutes. Add diced squash and taco seasoning, and stir to combine. Continue to cook, breaking up meat as small as possible, until turkey is cooked through and any juices have cooked off.
  3. Sprinkle approximately 1 tbsp. cheese down the center of a tortilla, and spread approximately 2 tbsp. meat over the cheese. Roll the taquito tightly, but not so tight that you crack the tortilla. (Don’t worry about small cracks.) Place seam side down in the prepared baking dish.
  4. Repeat with remaining tortillas, and place taquitos in the pan with sides touching.
  5. Stir together olive oil and chili powder, and very lightly brush seasoned oil over the tops of the rolled tortillas. (If you don’t have a basting brush, just use your fingers.) You will probably have leftover oil.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until tortillas are starting to brown and feel crisp when tapped.
  7. Serve with guacamole, sour cream, and/or salsa for dipping.
