If these flautas look familiar it’s because they are very similar to my Barbacoa Taquitos.  The difference between flautas and taquitos are the type of tortillas.  Flautas are made with flour tortillas where as taquitos are made with corn tortillas.  Corn tortillas are my first love but sometimes I make flautas to please my hubby.  The thing about making flautas is cooking the tortilla to that perfect crispness.  If overcooked they will be overly crunchy and taste like a cracker.  And the filling should be somewhat dry so that the tortilla won’t become soggy.  I went back to an old favorite, a seasoned slow cooked chuck roast flavored with Frontera’s Barbacoa sauce.  Chile de Arbol salsa and Molcajete Guacamole are the perfect condiments to dip your flautas in. Enjoy!
