Multiple flautas are usually served in a single serving, since small tortillas are often used. In addition to being available in Mexico, this dish. Traditionally I do believe Flautas are made with flour tortillas and Taquitos with corn tortillas. You can cook Flautas using 5 ingredients and 13 steps. Here is how you achieve it.
Ingredients of Flautas
- Prepare 1 lb of potatoes.
- It’s 8 oz of fresh ground chorizo.
- Prepare 8 each of green onions.
- It’s 1 of salt.
- It’s 11 each of six inch corn tortillas.
At least in Southern California these would be considered taquitos. I used cooked left over chicken. Minced the onion and bell pepper small. Cooked the onion, bell pepper – added the chicken and taco seasoning and cooked a bit.
Flautas step by step
- Cut potatoes into 1 inch pieces and boil until tender.
- Cook chorizo over medium high heat until brown, break into small pieces while cooking.
- Add onions, stir and cook for 1 minute.
- Add cooked potatoes to meat and mix well.
- Add salt to taste.
- Heat tortillas in microwave for 1 minute to soften.
- Place about 1/3 cup meat mixture on each tortilla and roll.
- Secure the open flap by inserting a toothpick straight in half way. After rolling your second tortilla, secure to the first one with the same toothpick.
- Repeat until all the chorizo is used.
- Heat about a half an inch of oil in large skillet over medium heat.
- Place toothpicked pairs of tortillas in oil and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, don't crowd the pan, do batches.
- When browned and crispy remove from oil to paper towels.
- Remove all toothpicks, serve with pico de gallo, sour cream or guacamole.
Turn as required to brown them evenly all over. Use tongs to lift the flautas from oil and tip to allow excess fat to drain out of each end. With flautas, the two things that vary by region are the filling and the toppings. In most cases, the filling is made from pulled chicken or beef, your favorite Mexican chili pepper, or just cheese. The toppings typically consist of shredded iceberg lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced avocado, sliced onion, sour cream, queso fresco or cotija, and your choice of your favorite salsa.
