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.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Heat tortillas, 1 at a time, in a small skillet over medium heat until warm and soft, about 30 seconds per side.

  • 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.

  • 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.

We liked these but there is room for improvement with the recipe. I made the recipe nearly as written. I could not find cilantro and omitted and used pepper jack cheese instead of Monterey Jack (due to Covid-19). Taste-wise they were okay, no complaints. Ingredient-wise, using what was listed I had enough to make 20 flautas with Spinach and 1 cup of Black Beans leftover (note-I measured the cheese directly from the bag so do not know how much I used). If I were to make these again I'd cook the filling first, this would make it easier to get a good roll for the flautas. Read More

I didn't really measure anything, but 2 cans of beans was waaaaayyyy too much. I ended up making an extra one to use up the rest of my spinach and cilantro and cheese. It was pretty good taste wise. Read More

I used homemade tortillas (5") and filled about 19 of them with the filling as measured...and we had MORE than a can of beans left over. ONLY USE ONE CAN! Other than using pepper jack cheese....we made them as suggested and they tasted great & the family loved them. Read More
