Honestly I've never seen flautas done with flour, just corn. Are you thinking of chimichangas? That's the only thing we fry in a flour tortilla and that's a north of the border invention anyways...

My english, she's not so good... I meant to say I did it with the malice of forethought.

I guess it is one of those takes on it in the US.

Chimichangas are a great accident though, I like those too!

The only flautas I've had are made with corn tortillas. I've always thought that taquitos are the frozen food section equivalent of a flauta, because I don't see taquitos on the menus of the local restaurants, only at grocery stores. My wonderful local Mexican restaurant makes wonderful chicken flautas.

taquitos literally means "mini tacos" and so are no different than tacos other than size, and that you usually see them deep fried. The taquitos you usually find in america are much closer to flautas than tacos. Flautas can be corn or flour tortilla, and are usually around 8 inches long. Either can have cheese in them, but flautas won't contain frsh vegatables or sour cream inside.

My brother asks for these every year on his birthday. We make about 50-60 at a time, and they're great! We call them flautas. We just fry the corn tortillas for a few seconds in oil. Let them drain on paper towels. In a separate bowl, mix chicken, cheese, picante sauce, cumin, and green onion. We roll this up in the tortillas, place them on a cookie sheet, and bake them in the oven (not sure what temperature) till they start to turn crispy. Serve with guacamole, sour cream, and salsa, & I'm good to go!!
