Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place ground beef, onion, and garlic in a large skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray and brown over medium-high heat.
  3. Using a spatula crumble beef into small pieces as it cooks.
  4. Add the chili powder, oregano, paprika, cumin, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and chile sauce to the pan and mix well.
  5. Wrap 6 of the corn tortillas at a time in a damp kitchen towel and warm briefly in the microwave- just enough to soften.
  6. For each flauta, spray both sides of 2 tortillas with cooking spray.
  7. Lay the tortillas down so they overlap by 4 inches.
  8. Spoon 1/4 cup or so of filling down the side of the paired tortillas and roll up tightly, the beef mixture should be in the center.
  9. Place on a heavy cookie sheet.
  10. Repeat with the others.
  11. Bake flautas, at 400 degrees until the tortillas are crisp, about 15 minutes.
  12. Serve with salsa, sour cream and guacamole.

I wanted to thank you for this recipe; I used the spices listed here with "Chicken & Cheese Flautas"-so I kind of combined the two! Thank you for the inspiration to make my flautas taste wonderful.
