I'm fine with these, but because they are so easy to make and my boys devour them like mad, I'm giving extra credit. Definitely added cheese the second time.

Very good as a flauta base, but could definitely use something more for the filling. Maybe some pico or cheese. Topped with sour cream or crema they are delicious.

These flautas were really good. I used basic salt and pepper for seasoning I normally would buy the frozen version, but they were not as good as this.

These Mexican flautas were so good. I used rotisserie chicken and smothered it in a guacamole and sour cream mixture, and cotija cheese. incredible flavor, so good. Trying to stay away from fried foods, but these are just too good to pass up.

Always called these “taquitos” but I guess flautas is the proper term. I added sauce from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo to the chicken to add some spice. They were really good, I didn’t need any toppings.
