Flauta Follow Up
This is a follow up to the flauta blog from yesterday. This shows a little bit more about how they go together.
Fillings can be made of whatever you like, I generally use whatever leftover meat I have on hand be it chicken, pork, beef, or even moose. Next I add a spicy type sauce or chile that I also usually have on hand, but even sriacha sauce will work. The third component is always some kind of shredded cheese.
In this picture I'm using chicken and a red chili salsa, Mix it all up together and spread a row of the filling mix on a rolled out tortilla. I have been making tortillas for over 50 years and still cannot roll out a perfectly round one, but it doesn't really matter in this case.
Then you roll them up. What keeps them closed? Some flour and water paste! Let it dry a little bit before you fry them.
I roll all mine up and then let them dry while the oil for frying is warming up. Drain on paper towels.
