They may go by different names such as “taquitos” depending on whom you ask, but the fact of the matter is that those small rolled up tacos perhaps best known as flautas are a dish that’s easy to make, tastes great, and won’t take up too much of your time. In fact, if you or someone you know has been watching the World Cup competition currently going on, you may have had some of these taquitos as a celebratory treat if your team won! Even if you aren’t paying any attention whatsoever to the World Cup, we’ll share how to easily prepare these tasty treats. Here is what you’ll need:
- Pair of cups of filling (beans, cooked and chopped meat are great options)
- Cooking spray
- Half a cup of shredded cheese
- Flour tortillas
- Pepper and salt
- Optional ingredients: a ¼ cup of sour cream, garlic powder, other spices
Begin by heating your oven to 400 degrees. While it’s heating up, use a medium bowl to mix together whatever filling you used with the cheese and the sour cream, if you chose to use it. Season the mixture with pepper and salt, the optional garlic powder, or another spice mixture. Grab a small spoonful of the mix and place it inside of the tortilla, making sure to tightly roll it up and placing the seam side facing down on a baking sheet. Repeat these steps for the remaining tortillas and then use the cooking spray. Cook for about twenty minutes, making sure to turn them halfway through.
