INSTRUCTIONS

Prep

Adjust rack to middle position, preheat oven to 425°;

Line a baking sheet with foil, brush with oil or coat with nonstick spray;

Halve, peel & thinly slice onion;

1 Make Filling

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sliced onions, cook for 3 minutes. Add beef, tomato paste, taco spice; cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until beef is browned & onion is softened, 4-6 minutes. Stir in black beans, corn. Turn off the heat.

2Prepare & Stuff Tortillas

Meanwhile, drizzle tortillas with olive oil, brush or rub to completely coat. 

Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Once beef filling is done, add beef filling to one side of each tortilla, then sprinkle each with Mexican cheese. Roll up tortillas, starting with filled sides, to create flautas.

3 Bake Flautas

Place seam sides down on prepared sheet. Make sure the flautas are snug on the sheet—this will prevent them from unrolling. Bake on middle rack until golden brown & crispy, 8-12 minutes.

4Finish Preparation of Veggies

Slice lime into wedges. Shred carrot, chop lettuce.

5To Serve

Divide flautas between plates. Top with shredded carrots, lettuce, pico de gallo, lime crema.
