Spicy Bean and Cheese Flautas Recipe – Winner Winner, Flautas Dinner
I absolutely love to make this flautas recipe for my family. It’s quick and easy, and it tastes wonderful. It has all the flavor and texture of real, honest-to-goodness Mexican food, not that stuff that uses chips for taco shells. The beauty of this flautas recipe is that it is so full of flavor, but it doesn’t take long at all to prepare. I like that because I’d much rather hang out with the family than the oven! The oven is nice enough, but it’s not big on conversation.
Whether it’s game day or just a special treat to break up the monotony, this spicy been and cheese flautas recipe is a winner every time. I love to make this on the weekends in the winter, and it’s always a staple for us when we watch football. It’s simple, hearty, delicious, and – bonus – practically a finger food!
