Black Bean and Poblano Flautas

with Guacamole and Pico de Gallo

Read more

When it comes to Mexican food, tacos typically get all the glory. In our opinion, flautas are an unsung dinner hero. They’re technically just crispy, rolled-up tacos—but they’re really so much more than that. Seriously, what could be better than warm, crunchy tortillas stuffed with all kinds of delicious fillings? Ours boast stewed and mashed black beans, diced poblano, and jalapeño-flecked pepper jack. They’re then pan fried until deeply golden and topped with guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream, and hot sauce.

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a small pot over medium-high heat. Add remaining beans and cook, stirring, until slightly softened, 2-3 minutes. Add ¼ cup reserved bean liquid (½ cup for 4 servings). Let simmer until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir in 1 TBSP butter. Remove pot from heat, then mash beans with a potato masher or fork until mostly smooth. Season with plenty of salt and pepper.

Wash out pan used for filling. Heat a large drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Place flautas seam sides down in pan. Cook, carefully turning so they stay intact, until golden brown and crispy, 1-2 minutes per side. TIP: Work in batches if necessary and watch carefully to avoid burning.
