Baked Black Bean and Spinach Flautas

Rated as 3.5 out of 5 Stars

"A vegetarian take on a classic Mexican dish. These delicious flautas are baked until crispy using cooking spray instead of vegetable oil to "fry" the tortillas. Topped with plain Greek yogurt for a wholesome and tasty alternative to sour cream."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Heat tortillas, 1 at a time, in a small skillet over medium heat until warm and soft, about 30 seconds per side.
  3. Spray both sides of a tortilla with cooking spray. Spread about 1 tablespoon black beans down the middle, then top with spinach, about 1 teaspoon cilantro, 1 tablespoon salsa, and sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese and cumin. Roll the tortilla up and place seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat to form remaining flautas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until crispy, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Use your favorite salsa and plain in place of Greek yogurt, if preferred.
