One thing I love to order at a Mexican restaurant are flautas
taquitos. Especially when I'm not that hungry. It's just a little
but still tasty. These are really good. And if you don't have
all day to
cook a roast, you can certainly use ground beef instead of the roast.
Or even chicken. There are just so many ways to change these up. Make
them spicier if you want. Or cheesier!
Just make 'em!!
1 2-pound chuck roast
1 7-ounce can diced green chiles
1/2 cup water
1 medium onion ~ diced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
10 - 12 flour tortillas
2 cups grated cheese
oil for frying
Combine spices in a small bowl.
Place roast in crock pot. Add water.
Sprinkle with spice mixture.
Add green chiles and onion.
Cook on low for 6 - 8 hours until tender.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Remove roast, along with the chiles and onion, from crock pot to a plate. Shred meat.
Heat flour tortillas in the microwave, one at a time, for about 10 seconds.
Add a few tablespoons of the meat and a sprinkling of cheese.
tortilla up and place seam side down into the hot oil. Fry 2 - 3
minutes per side until golden brown. Drain on paper towel and keep warm
in the oven until all flautas are cooked.
Serve with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
