Flautas have always been one of my favorite Mexican dishes, after reading so many recipes I came up with my own. My husband and I like to fry these up together on taco Tuesdays. Can be served with Spanish rice and/or refried beans.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place pork roast into the bottom of a slow cooker. Cover pork with red salsa, garlic, chili powder, and salt.

  • Cover the slow cooker and cook on Low until tender and cooked through, 4 to 6 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  • Turn off slow cooker. Remove any fat from pork and discard. Transfer pork to a large bowl and shred well using 2 forks. Let cool at least 10 minutes.

  • Pour olives, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, and green salsa over pork. Mix well until thick and not runny.

  • Warm tortillas in a skillet over low heat to soften, 15 to 20 seconds per side.

  • Meanwhile, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat in a large frying pan.

  • Add a spoonful of pork mixture to each tortilla and roll up tightly. Place rolled tortillas in hot oil and fry until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Keep warm and serve with remaining 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup Cheddar cheese, and guacamole.

Cook's Notes:

These can be made and cut into smaller pieces to serve as appetizers.

You can use corn tortillas. Chicken can replace the pork if preferred, and you can skip the cheese and sour cream for plain rolled tacos as well.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

I used shredded beef, packaged, and it was good but I think pork would be better. I will be making this often. Read More

Turned out well but the recommended seasoning is a little take. The pork cooked for 6 hours, mixed beautifully. The texture is very good. Warm the tortillas and then fry. Splendid, I’ll make it again. My guys liked it a lot. Read More
