Baked Vegetarian Flautas

How about one more delicious recipe made with my homemade whole wheat tortillas?

Oh yes, thank you.  I knew I wouldn't have to twist your arm too hard for this one :)

If you haven't had a chance to check out my tortilla recipe, please take a moment, it changed my life (or at least how I feel about tortillas).  They are SO easy and SO delicious and as you've seen through these recipes (and maybe one more on the way) they have many applications and uses.

This time I stuffed my flautas with my leftover quesadilla stuffing of black beans, shredded zucchini and mushrooms with fresh cilantro and monterrey jack cheese.  Once you get the process down, you can stuff these with ANYTHING!  The filling combinations and possibilities are endless!

Baked Vegetarian Flautas
1 c canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1 zucchini, cleaned and shredded on a box grater
1 c sliced white mushrooms
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder (or more to taste, or omit for children)
1/2 tsp cajun seasoning (or more to taste, or omit for children)
1 c shredded cheese (divided into all of the flautas)
whole wheat tortillas

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil.  Add the black beans, mushrooms and shredded zucchini and saute on medium low for 2 minutes (stirring frequently).  Add the seasonings and stir to mix.  If needed add 1-2 tbsp of water at this point if the mixture is very dry.  Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until vegetables are cooked and slightly browned.  Then remove the vegetables from the pan.

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees. Spoon the vegetable mixture into the center of a tortilla. Top with fresh diced cilantro and sliced or shredded cheese.  Roll the tortilla around the filling.  Place the flautas on a foil lined baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until crispy and slightly browned. Enjoy!

This sounds like a delicious and fun Friday night meal. I will try it tonight! Do you remember what kind of cheese you used?
