Food Storage Recipe: flautas

i've been trying to try (wow that makes me sound totally lame) some more food storage recipes lately and last week i made these flautas. they were pretty yummy, especially for food storage. although i have to admit i used fresh salsa in mine, but i'm sure the bottled stuff is still good. so here is the recipe directly copied from safely gathered in:

photo source, recipe source

6 10-inch flour tortillas
1 teaspoon cooking oil
1 can or 2 cups chicken
1 can of black beans or approximately 1 1/2 -2 cups of beans
1/2 cup bottled salsa
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Cooking oil for frying

Preheat oven to 350. wrap tortillas tightly in foil. Heat for 10 minutes or until heated through.
In a large skillet cook oil, beans, chicken, and spices until heated. Spoon about a 1/2 cup of filling into each warm tortilla. Roll tortilla tightly and secure with wooden toothpicks.
In a very large, deep skillet, heat 1 1/2 inches of cooking oil. Fry flautas, two at a time, for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp and golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Keep fried flautas warm in a 300 oven while frying remaining flautas.
Remove toothpicks and serve...

If you prefer to bake them you can place on a baking sheet and brush with cooking oil. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and heated through.

When rotating, we serve these with cheese, sour cream, salsa, and guacamole... for obvious reasons these things are not food storage friendly! Hope you enjoy!

*note added: could use leftover roast, steak or pork

*suggested side dishes:
cilantro lime coleslaw
refried beans
mexican rice
