Growing up, flautas (otherwise known as taquitos) were a staple in our household. They are a quick and delicious dinner that can be pulled together with minimal ingredients yet taste amazing. Usually these would be filled with shredded chicken but potatoes were also a common filling. As a vegetarian, I love that I can still enjoy this meal that is true to the cooking I had growing up! I love dressing these up with homemade sauces/salsa, sliced radishes, lime and cilantro but feel free to add more cheese, sour cream, guac, etc -- really no limits to what these can be enjoyed with. If you have any leftovers, I recommend warming them up in the oven or air fryer so that the tortilla can get nice and crispy!
This recipe yields about 8 flautas, but you may get an extra or two depending on the size of your potatoes and how much filling you add in. Although it may be tempting to add a lot of filling, I do not recommend it as the tortilla might break!
I hope you enjoy this quick and tasty meal!
