How to Make Flautas with Green Chili

Flautas, in case you are not familiar with them, are a close cousin of tacos and enchiladas, though their smaller size lands them decidedly under the umbrella of appetizers or snacks, though you could certainly make a meal out of them if you were so inclined.

Named for the Spanish word for flute, these little fried tortilla tubes may be filled with a variety of things, from meats to cheeses and vegetables. While the options are many, the common element in just about every recipe for flautas is that the filling is a savory one.

In this green chili flautas recipe, the flautas are filled with roasted green chilies – the canned New Mexico-style green chilies are perfect for this dish, though you can go ahead and roast your own if you like. Also included are Monterey jack cheese and corn to round out the earthy-sweet-spicy flavor of the green chilies with their own unique tastes. Continue reading

Chipotle Smoked Pork Flautas

If you have ever made a large smoked pork roast and wondered what to do with all of the leftovers, we have an answer for you. Mexican cuisine is rich in pork recipes, many of which pair the meat with the spicy, assertively smoky flavor of chipotle; these smoked jalapeno peppers are an ideal foil for the rich, full flavors of pork.

The smokiness of the meat matches up perfectly with the smoky flavor of chipotle peppers in this smoky spicy pork flautas recipe. If you enjoy this flavor combined with the heat of hot peppers and the heartiness of pork, you may never need another way to use up the leftovers; not that this recipe isn’t good enough to make a pork roast for on its own.

Despite requiring deep frying, this is actually a very easy recipe to prepare. Since this recipe supposes that you are using leftover pork, it takes a surprisingly short time to make these absolutely delicious flautas. Continue reading

Beef Flautas Recipe

Flautas are one Mexican dish which not everyone on our side of the Rio Grande is familiar with quite yet. However, they are very similar to both tacos and chimichangas, which you probably know well, whether or not you have ever heard of a flauta before. These are filled corn tortillas which are rolled up into a tube (or “flute,” which is what flauta means in Spanish) and fried briefly to make them crisp, then usually topped with some sort of salsa; salsa verde in this case.

The filling here is barbacoa. This is a word which means different things to different people, largely depending on where you live. In Texas and in much of northern Mexico, barbacoa is made with beef cheeks or goat (barbacoa de chivo); if you can get fresh goat meat, you can make the recipe that way as well. In central Mexico, lamb is the barbacoa of choice and in the Yucatan, barbacoa means pork, the famous cochinita pibil.

You are free to substitute any of these meats in this recipe, though for this flautas recipe, we have assumed that you will be using either chuck roast or beef cheeks in the Texas style. Basically, barbacoa involves slowly steaming meat, usually with smoke, like a pit barbecue – though to make this recipe, you will be using a crock pot instead. It is a great dish to throw together in the morning, since it will be ready to be served when you get home in the evening. Continue reading
