READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by faith58

I got out this recipe out of the paper from a well known restaurant in our area. I made them tonight and the family loved them so decided to post the recipe!! Hope you enjoy them :) I added a few more spices as called for and played with it. I also warmed the corn tortillas before putting the meat in and frying them. Time is for all the cooking and rest of steps! I also added a touch of garlic powder and onion powder with the other seasonings. Next time I might also add cheddar or mexican cheese to some and see how that would taste too, Yummy :)

These flautas are excellent. Tastes just like flautas you'd have at a mexican restaurant. GOOD JOB MOM!!
