“Flauta” is Spanish for “flute,” but these little rolled tacos are more commonly known in the U.S. as taquitos. Taquitos are usually purchased frozen, in industrial-sized packages from Costco or Sam’s Club, but making them yourself takes no time, and results in a much more satisfying flauta.

  • 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2/3 Cups salsa, such as CHI-CHI'S® Thick & Chunky Salsa Medium
