A popular snack food in Mexico, flautas pair tortillas with savory fillings, which are then baked or heated to perfection. With a side of salsa, sour cream or guacamole for dipping, flautas are perfect as a passed hors d’oeuvre, an afternoon snack, or even as a light meal with a side salad. For this trio of flavors, we take soft flour tortillas and roll them around three flavorful fillings, inspired by the flavors of the Southwest.
Beef and Black Bean Flautas: Zesty beef and beans with a touch of jack cheese wrapped in a flour tortilla.
Chicken Breast and Ancho Chile Flautas: A mildly spicy filling of ancho chile and tender chicken breast within in a flour tortilla.
Southwest Vegetable Flautas: A medley of zesty sautéed vegetables with a crumble of jack and feta cheese encased in a flour tortilla.
