Avocado Taquitos

Avocado Taquitos aka "Flautas" - these corn tortillas are filled with avocados and cheese and fried to perfection!

It’s no surprise that my family loves Mexican food. I mean, we are Hispanic and my family has grown up on the best Mexican recipes since I was a little girl. Some of the recipes have been handed down from generation to generation, but some are ones we’ve made up along the way. One of the recipes we’ve made up is the one we are sharing today for Avocado Flautas (aka Avocado Taquitos). I asked my mom if she was the one who made them up, but she’s not quite sure if it was her, my aunt or my grandma. All she knows is that she has been making them for years, which means we have been enjoying them for years! ;D

It’s a very simple recipe that requires just 4 ingredients and can be whipped up in no time. Typically, we make Beef Flautas using a chuck roast we’ve cooked up in the slow cooker. Sometimes, we do chicken, but our favorite is the avocado version. Each corn tortilla is filled with avocado and cheese and fried to perfection. Yes, I said fried… which means they aren’t healthy, but man are they good!! It’s pretty much like eating tortilla chips with cheese filled guac. Sound good? If so, then you’ll definitely love this recipe. Here is what you’ll need to make them…

    how much oil do i put in the pan? and what kind of oil? i want to make these i am new to cooking

    1. I usually add about 1/4-1/2in. You want enough to coat the bottom of the pan & a little higher. I just use vegetable oil. Good luck!
