Baked Beef and Black Bean Flautas


Here's a new recipe I served to our family. I hope you'll enjoy it! In case you've ever wondered, a Flauta is a long flour tortilla rolled up in filling and fried, (or in this case, baked) and a Taquito is a short corn tortilla rolled up in filling and fried. You may use my recipe for flour tortillas if desired.

1 1/2 pounds ground hamburger
1/2 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon hot sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
15 oz. can black beans, drained
2 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
10 flour tortillas

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In large skillet, brown hamburger. Add onion, garlic, hot sauce, soy sauce, chili powder, onion powder, and ground cumin. Stir in black beans. Simmer for 5-7 minutes. Spoon 1/2 cup on one edge of flour tortilla. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheddar cheese. Roll tightly and lay seam-side down on greased baking sheet. Repeat until mixture is gone. Spray tops with cooking oil. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Turn and bake for an additional 5-6 minutes. Allow to cool before serving. Serve with cheese dip, salsa, and sour cream. Enjoy!
