Easy Baked Flautasmedium prep time 15 mins | cook time 15 mins | SERVINGS 4
2 green onions
1 1/2 cups LaFe Refried Beans
1/4 cup salsa, plus more to serve
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
14 6-inch flour or corn tortillas
2 tablespoons olive oil, for brushing
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, for sprinkling
For dipping: guacamole, salsa, or sour cream

Thinly slice the green onions.
Season refried beans to taste.
In a large bowl, mix together the green onion, refried
beans, salsa, chili powder, and shredded cheese.
If you’re using 100% corn tortillas, you may want to
pan fry each one in a skillet with a drizzle of olive oil
(or without in a dry pan) to prevent
cracking and help them be easier to work with. Every
tortilla brand is different, so if your tortillas seem
brittle it’s helpful to heat them before rolling.
Lay a tortilla on a work surface. Spoon about 2
tablespoons of the bean mixture in a dollop onto the
bottom half of the tortilla. Be careful not to use too

filling will spread out and hold the tortilla together).
Place the flauta seam-side down on the baking sheet.
Repeat for the remaining tortillas.
When the flautas are assembled, brush the tops with
oil and sprinkle them with a bit of salt. Bake for 15
to 20 minutes, until crisp and browned. Some of the
beans will come out the ends of the rolls, which is
expected. Serve with salsa, guacamole, or sour
