Ingredients

    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

     

Directions

  • STEP ONE
    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a
    baking sheet with parchment paper (necessary for
    cleanup!).

  • STEP TWO
    Thinly slice the green onions.

  • STEP THREE
    Season refried beans to taste.

  • STEP FOUR
    In a large bowl, mix together the green onion, refried
    beans, salsa, chili powder, and shredded cheese.

  • STEP FIVE
    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.

  • STEP SIX
    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
    much! Tightly roll the tortilla from the bottom (the
    filling will spread out and hold the tortilla together).
    Place the flauta seam-side down on the baking sheet.
    Repeat for the remaining tortillas.

  • STEP SEVEN
    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
    cream.
