Baking Sheet
Aluminum Foil
Box Grater
Large Pan
Can Opener
Small Bowl



• Adjust rack to top 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. • Trim and grate zucchini on the largest holes of a box grater. Place in the center of a clean kitchen towel. Gather into a tight bundle and squeeze over the sink to remove as much liquid as possible. (Alternatively, place in a fine-mesh strainer and press down with a spatula.) • Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Drain corn, then pat dry with paper towels.

Cook Veggies

• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and a pinch of salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and softened, 3-4 minutes. Add corn and scallion whites; cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and lightly charred in spots, 2-4 minutes. TIP: Cover pan if corn starts to pop. • Add Southwest Spice and half the enchilada sauce; cook, stirring often, until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat; stir in Monterey Jack until melted. Taste and season with salt and pepper if desired.

Assemble Flautas

• Meanwhile, drizzle tortillas with 1 TBSP olive oil (2 TBSP for 4 servings); brush or rub to completely coat on both sides. • Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Once corn and zucchini filling is done, add a heaping ¼ cup filling to one side of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas, starting with filled sides, to create flautas. • Place, seam sides down, on prepared sheet. TIP: Arrange your flautas snug on the sheet to keep them from unrolling.

Bake Flautas

• Bake flautas on top rack until golden brown and crispy, 8-12 minutes.

Warm Sauces

• In a small bowl, microwave remaining enchilada sauce on high until warmed through, 45-60 seconds. • In a second small bowl, combine queso blanco with 1 TBSP water (2 TBSP for 4 servings). Microwave on high until warmed through, 25 seconds; stir to combine.


• Divide flautas between plates. Drizzle with queso blanco and as much remaining enchilada sauce as you like. Sprinkle with scallion greens and serve.
