Black Bean and Avocado Flautas for #SundaySupper

Black Bean and Avocado Flautas - Supper for a Steal

I’m no stranger to meatless meals. My lunches are almost always meatless and I only have meat for dinner maybe twice a week. Most of the time my meatless meals are pretty healthy, but not today friends!

I made flautas, and I fried them!

There are plenty of veggies stuffed inside those little fried rolls, but lets not fool ourselves into thinking veggies inside fried tortillas are healthy.

I was perusing Pinterest one day and saw a recipe for fried black bean and avocado burritos. This sounded like a winning combination which I thought would be even better snack sized.

Black Bean and Avocado Flautas


The black bean and avocado flauta was born. The term flauta or taquito seems to be used interchangeably often on food blogs, but after a little research it looks like fried flour tortillas are flautas while if these were in corn tortillas it would be more appropriate to refer to them as taquitos. I just call them delicious.

    Oh wow I love black beans and avocados together. I have some corn tortillas in the fridge that really need using up so I think some flautas might be in order.
