Flautas (also know as taquitos) are a rolled, crispy style taco that’s typically fried. The filling can vary and is typically chicken, shredded pork, or beef. I like that these can be easily customizable with any filling that you prefer.
Because I love to BBQ, I often have left over smoked pulled pork. After creating a batch of my Keto Corn Style Tortillas, I simple fill and roll each one. They easily seal naturally too, as long as they aren’t sitting for too long in the open air.
Lightly pan fry them in a little bit of avocado oil. Avocado oil has a high smoke point and is better for cooking the tortillas so the fry and don’t burn.
Once they are cooked, I lie to plate them over some cabbage or shredded lettuce. Add a nice amount of sour cream, some slice jalapenos, salsa, avocado and hot sauce if that’s what your prefer.
- 1 Batch of Keto Tortillas
- 1.5 cups of Shredded Meat (Chicken, Beef, or Pulled Pork)
- Avocado Oil for Pan Frying
- Prepare the keto tortillas per the directions and set them aside. Prep any meat needed for the filling.
- Lay one tortilla in front of you and place a few tablespoons of meat towards the front 1/3rd of the tortilla shell. Tightly but gently, roll the tortilla up (you do not need to close off the sides). It will naturally seal and stick together.
- Preheat a pan to medium heat with a few teaspoons of avocado oil (you will not need a lot). Lightly brown the seam side down first, then rotate the flauta to brow the other side. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. I like to cook in smaller batches and they cook in under a few minutes each.
- Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
