STEAK FLAUTAS

Flautas are my favorite of all my Mexican dishes. Flauta, means “flute” in Spanish, and describes the manner in which the corn tortilla is tightly rolled around the beef and fried in hot oil. They are eaten as soon as they are fried and delicious served with avocado sauce. I am happy to share my recipe with you! Enjoy!
