Beef Flautas Supreme
with Pico de Gallo & Smoky Red Pepper Crema
Don’t get us wrong, we enjoy a traditional taco—but when we’re in the mood to mix things up, we love flautas (aka rolled-up tacos with a crispy outer shell). Here, we achieve the signature flauta crunch factor by baking the stuffed tortillas (full of zesty beef and a Mexican cheese blend) for perfectly golden results—no messy deep-frying required. That crispy crust is the perfect canvas for two of our favorite toppings: pico de gallo and smoky crema. Yes, you really can have it all.

• Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and brush with oil (or coat with nonstick spray). Wash and dry produce. • Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion; mince a few slices until you have 1 TBSP (2 TBSP for 4 servings).
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sliced onion; cook for 3 minutes. • Add beef* and Southwest Spice Blend; cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until beef is browned and onion is softened, 4-6 minutes. • Stir in Tex-Mex paste and 1⁄3 cup water (½ cup for 4 servings). Simmer until mixture has thickened and beef is cooked through, 2-4 minutes more. Turn off heat.
• Meanwhile, drizzle tortillas with 1 TBSP olive oil (2 TBSP for 4 servings); brush or rub to completely coat. • Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Once beef filling is done, add a heaping ¼ cup filling to one side of each tortilla, then sprinkle each with 1 TBSP Mexican cheese blend. Roll up tortillas, starting with filled sides, to create flautas. Place, seam sides down, on prepared sheet. TIP: Make sure the flautas are snug on the sheet—this will prevent them from unrolling. • Bake on middle rack until golden brown and crispy, 8-12 minutes.
• While flautas bake, finely dice tomato. In a small bowl, combine tomato and minced onion. Season with salt. • Divide flautas between plates. Top with pico de gallo and red pepper crema. Serve.
