I am well aware that I have a complete addiction to Mexican Food. But being that yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, I felt my desire for a 4th night in a row of Mexican goodness, was justifiable.
I have done so much with Mexican fare….from burritos to tacos to loaded nachos….but never have I ever made a Flauta.
A Flauta (sometimes referred to as a “Taquito”) is basically a stuffed tortilla that is rolled up and then deep-fried – pretty much the greatest invention next to bacon. So I decided to test out these bad boys with a Sara-original recipe and I have to say, it may have been one of my top 3 recipes EVER. I know, I know, this is a loaded statement, but seriously, my husband and I housed these Flautas…. it was a Flauta massacre…
So with that said, I share with you this incredibly awesome recipe (I shall pat myself on the back now), and hope you try them out! If you want to make this recipe healthier – try baking the flautas instead of deep frying them (but seriously... what’s the fun in that?!)
