Spinach and Artichoke Taquitos

Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Taquitos - these fried, rolled-up tacos are sure to be a hit whether served as appetizers or even for dinner!

Let’s talk about FLAUTAS for a little bit. Most people don’t know what they are, but I grew up eating them. They’re pretty much taquitos, and although I definitely consider today’s recipe flautas, I decided to call them Taquitos so more people would know what they are. They’re rolled up corn tortilla shells that are filled with ingredients and fried to perfection. Now you know what a flauta is and if you know me personally, why I would use this word to call a rolled up taco. Any time I say them to friends, they usually say, “huh?” and then I say, “a taquito” and they reply, “gotcha!” It makes me laugh every time.

We have always been fans of flautas/taquitos and since I’ve been on a Spinach and Artichoke kick the last month, I wanted to try Spinach and Artichoke Taquitos. I was so pleased with how these turned out and love that we have a new flauta to make every once in awhile. Typically, we usually have shredded beef flautas, but our other favorites are Avocado flautas and Cream Cheese and Chicken Flautas.

As you can see, the options are endless but if you love tacos, then you’ll love this recipe. You can control just how much of the spinach and artichoke filling you want based on how tight you roll up your tortilla. They can be skinnier and served as an appetizer or more round for more of a dinner serving. No matter how you serve it up, these flautas are sure to be a hit!

    These look amazing! Would you say it would be better to use frozen spinach over fresh spinach

      I’ve only used frozen spinach. Not sure how the fresh spinach would be. I would stick to the frozen kind, but if you prefer fresh, I’d love to know how it turns out 🙂 Thanks!!
