Don’t get us wrong, we love a traditional taco—but when we’re in the mood to mix things up, we love flautas, aka rolled-up tacos with a crispy outer shell. Here, we achieve the signature flauta crunch factor by baking the stuffed tortillas full of zesty beef, beans, corn and Mexican cheese for perfectly golden results— topped with pico de gallo and lime crema. Yes, you really can have it all.

    PREPPING INSTRUCTIONS

    Adjust rack to middle position & preheat oven to 425 degrees

    Line a baking sheet with foil & brush with oil or coat with nonstick spray

    Halve, peel, & thinly slice onion

      COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

      Step 1: Make filling

      Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sliced onions & cook for 3 minutes. Add beef, tomato paste, & taco spice; cook, breaking up meat into pieces until beef is browned & onion is softened 4-6 minutes. Stir in black beans & corn. Turn off heat.

      Step 2: Prepare & stuff tortillas

      Meanwhile, drizzle tortillas with olive oil, brush or rub to completely coat.

      Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Once beef filling is done, add beef filling to one side of each tortilla, then sprinkle each with Mexican cheese. Roll up tortillas, starting with filled sides, to create flautas.

      Step 3: Bake flautas

      Place seam sides down on prepared sheet. Make sure the flautas are snug on the sheet—this will prevent them from unrolling. Bake on middle rack until golden brown & crispy, 8-12 minutes.

      Step 4: Finish preparation of veggies

      Slice lime into wedges. Shred carrot & chop lettuce

      Step 5: To serve

      Divide flautas between plates. Top with shredded carrots, lettuce, pico de gallo, & lime crema.
