Baked Beef Taquitos with Guacamole Dip

I've been pinning many recipes for chicken taquitos on Pinterest lately.  Although I'm sure the chicken taquitos are superb I've been craving beef.  I decided to throw some beef taquitos together and they turned out awesome.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
~1 can black beans drained and rinsed
~3 oz light cream cheese
~1/4 tsp chili powder
~1/4 tsp cumin
~1/4 tsp paprika
~1/4 tsp pepper
~2 tbsp salsa
Mix above ingredients in Cuisinart food processor until just mixed.
~1 lb lean ground beef
~2 tbsp Worshestershire sauce
~1/2 tsp pepper
~1/2 tsp garlic salt
~1/2 cup water
Cook beef thoroughly.  Drain.  Mix ingredients and continue cooking until all water is absorbed.
~10-15 corn tortillas
~2 cups shredded cheese
Cook in pan turning often on medium heat.
Begin to assemble your taquitos with the meat.  Add about 2 tbsp meat.
Add about 1 1/2 tbsp of the bean mixture.
Add 1 tbsp shredded cheese.
Fold over largest open area of tortilla and pull ingredients into roll. 
Then continue to roll as tightly as possible.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Place rolls with opening face down.
Place in oven and cook for about 10 minutes and them turn them over. 
Cook until golden brown.  Remove from oven and allow them to cook slightly before serving.
Serve with salsa, light sour cream or guacamole.
~1 ripe avocado
~2 tbsp salsa
~1/2 lemon squeezed
~1/4 tsp pepper
~1/4 garlic salt
~1/2 cup light sour cream
