This Mexican-style pesto is made with pepitas instead of nuts; look for them at natural-food stores, gourmet grocers, or Latin markets.

    I thought flautas were made with flour tortillas and taquitos were made with corn tortillas.

    I made this for a dinner party that I gave for my new group of women friends (I've recently relocated) and they said it was fabulous and ate every bite so I don't think they were just trying to make me feel better. I served it with roasted onions and squash laced with chili powder and a green salad with cilantro lime dressing. Oh, and Mexican chocolate cake.

    I used pine nuts instead of pepitas. My grocery store didn't carry pepitas. My husband I liked these and I would make them again.
