    My family loved these. They are going in our weekly rotation. So easy to make. Great for a busy week night meal or an after school snack.

    I LOVE this recipe because the flavor up to your own creativity. You can fill these flautas with anything you want! I've made this recipe at least 5 times and every time I'm thoroughly pleased. So, it's become a staple in my house.

    I've filled my flautas with leftover chicken breast meat, as well as leftover pot roast meat. ...then I just add a cheese, and some veggies (corn, diced zucchini, spinach leaves), herbs and legumes (pintos, black beans, etc.)

    I saw this on the show today and thought I should try something different. It is a quick and easy lunch to make. Usually you would have these ingredients at home. Mine did not come out that crispy as I thought they would be, but they were really tasty. We did eat them with guacamole as a dip, which was a plus. This is a great healthy choice and I would make it again.
