Recipe by Pierre Dance
I found this one online but I don't remember where. The flautas are very good but the salsa is outstanding. It goes well with all manner of dishes especially tacos, burritos, and chimichangas, etc. The times are a guess.

We love Mexican around here, and I was searching for something different to make. This was it! We loved the salsa! I used 2 jalapenos to bring up the heat a little, and it was great! We enjoyed these right down to fighting over the last one! We will enjoy these many times!
