Shredded Beef, Caramelized Onion, and Cotija Cheese Baked Flautas

Shredded Beef, Caramelized Onion, and Cotija Cheese Baked Flautas

by Pam on March 10, 2013

We had friends over for dinner and I made my Shredded Beef Soft Tacos[1] because my friend Kyle loves my shredded beef. We had leftover meat so the following day I made these baked flautas for lunch and they turned out delicious! You just can’t go wrong with shredded beef and caramelized onions! This was a great way to use up the leftover meat and a very tasty lunch that we all enjoyed.

Prepare the shredded beef. Click this link for the recipe[2].

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil then place two wire cooling racks on top of the baking sheet. Side Note: Using the cooling racks help prevent the flautas from getting soggy from the liquid in the beef while baking.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20-25 minutes, or until tender and caramelized. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Side Note: Add a little water if the onions get dry while cooking to prevent burning.

Heat the flour tortillas in the microwave for 20-30 seconds so they become pliable. Place a bit of caramelized onions in the center of the tortilla first then add some shredded beef (make sure to drain most of the juice from the beef) on top followed by a sprinkling of cotija cheese; roll. Place, seam side down, on the cooling racks on top of the baking sheet. Finish rolling the rest of the flautas, then spray each of them with cooking spray.

Place into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes then turn over and cook for an additional 5-6 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.

Serve the baked flautas immediately with guacamole[3], salsa[4], and/or sour cream, if desired. Enjoy.
