Inspired by my friend Beto, I am in love with flautas (also called taquitos) which I make with potatoes. A totally delicious (and easy) appetizer/snack! I made 6 but only 5 made it onto the serving platter!
Flautas con Papas
6 corn tortillas
3 yukon gold potatoes (papas)
S and P
Peel and boil the potatoes and then mash them. Season with salt and pepper.
Steam the tortillas until soft. They have to be soft enough to roll without cracking. I use my bamboo steamer.
Place a spoonful of potatoes on one end of the tortilla. Roll up and place on a plate until all are rolled.
Heat up about 2″ of oil in a pan with sides. Carefully place the flautas seam side down and cook until crispy. Roll them over and crisp the other side.
Creamy Avocado Sauce
1/2 cup water
A few sprigs of cilantro
Process all in processor until creamy, a few seconds.
Line up the flautas on a plate. Top with avocado sauce. Place the extra sauce on the side for dipping. Enjoy!
