Beef Flauta Recipe
The big game is coming up this weekend and we are in full party planning mode. There are so many must-haves for the Super Bowl and these Baked Beef Flautas totally made the list. So easy to prepare and baking them is absolutely a must for a party. No greasy mess and they’re all done and ready to go at the same time – yay for ovens!
The tortillas bake up so nice and crispy you won’t even miss the frying – promise!
I used ground beef for this recipe and seasoned them with taco seasoning. Fajita seasoning would also be delicious! By the way, this recipe also works with chicken. Just shred and season and you’re good to go.
We made up our favorite queso dip because duh, these flautas need to be dipped for sure! Just two ingredients – RO*TEL and VELVEETA – ensure a creamy, easy, and delicious queso that everyone loves.
I used fajita sized tortillas and cut them in half so they’re the perfect size for dipping in the zesty queso. If you have larger tortillas you may want to cut them into thirds.
Once the queso dip is all melted and ready to go, I put it in a small slow cooker to keep it warm for the entire party. Plus, my boys will want to dip every single appetizer served into this queso so using the slow cooker ensures that it’s always ready for them 🙂
How To Make Flautas
