Flautas have been a staple in Mexican cuisine for generations, but they have become increasingly popular in the US over the past few decades. Not only are they incredibly delicious, but they are also relatively easy to make at home.
Flautas are thin, rolled-up, flute-like flour tortillas, typically filled with shredded chicken or beef and deep-fried until golden and crispy. The flauta is then garnished with sauces and other toppings to create an unforgettable meal that many have enjoyed for centuries.
The origin of ‘flauta’ dates back to ancient times when people prepared variations using wheat flour dough instead of flour/corn tortillas. The stuffing inside the flautas has also changed over time, and it often includes Refried beans, Pork carnitas, Shredded chicken, Shredded Beef, and Potato filling.
The flauta can be served as is or topped with various sauces for added flavor. Toppings may include crema Mexicana (Mexican cream), salsa verde (green sauce), salsa roja (red sauce), or special recipes such as Habanero or Cream Poblano (recommended).
Flautas are a common street food found in Mexico and throughout Latin America. They are a fun and easy way to enjoy Mexican food. Their name translates to ‘flute’ in Spanish.
