Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium-high. Season the ground beef with the spices. Add in the ground beef and cook until it’s cooked thoroughly and crumbling. Using a biscuit cutter, cut the tortillas into smaller circles and set aside. Once the beef is cooked, use a small spoon to scoop it onto a small corn tortilla. Put a little bit of the cheddar cheese on top of all of the meat and fold the tortillas. Use a toothpick to keep the shell closed. Bake the taquitos for 10 minutes or until golden.
