  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 10 soft taco or fajita size tortillas
  • olive oil

Queso Dip:

  • 10 ounces Ro*Tel® Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies undrained
  • 16 ounces Velveeta cut into 1/2-inch cubes


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Brown ground beef in a medium-sized pan over medium-high heat.
  • Stir in onion and continue sauteing until onion is nice and translucent, 3-4 minutes.
  • Stir in taco seasoning and water. Bring to a simmer and let simmer for 6-8 minutes or until liquid has evaporated.
  • Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  • For each flauta, spoon about 3 tablespoons of the beef mixture onto a tortilla.
  • Roll each tortilla up tightly and place seam-side down on baking sheet.
  • Continue assembling flautas one at a time until you’re done.
  • Once all flautas have been assembled, spray the tops of each with additional cooking spray or brush lightly with olive oil.
  • Bake for ten minutes, flip flautas over, and bake for five additional minutes. They should be a nice golden brown.
  • While flautas are baking, prepare the queso dip.
  • Combine can of undrained tomatoes and Velveeta in medium saucepan.
  • Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until Velveeta has melted completely and mixture is blended, stirring frequently.
  • Serve flautas with warm queso dip.
