I arrived home one day to the smell of cumin. I asked my daughter, Ayana Grace, "Why the Mexican smell?" Well, her seeming invasion into my kitchen laboratory is fast becoming a habit! (Honestly, I like it especially after working more than eight hours in the office. What could be a better relief than going home to a hearty meal?) An avid fan (errr stalker?) of the Divas Can Cook YT channel and website, she was into another experiment. Oh yes, she's living up to her profession as a chemist, indeed! Last month, I posted about the Pepperoni Pizza Quesadilla dish she made, also from Divas Can Cook.
This time, I'm featuring her Tuna Flautas wrapped in tortillas. Ayana Grace used the Chicken Flautas recipe (minus the cayenne powder and cilantro which were not available in our laboratory) from the Divas Can Cook but used tuna flakes instead of chicken.
Bestseller of the day
Okay, I got it here... it was simply.... P-E-R-F-E-C-T!!!! Even without the toppings! Yummy! I so love it, I can have it over and over again! But I would like to add some veggie and more cheese toppings on it next time.
Sour cream for the dip
Desiring to perfect the flauta craft, Ayana did a second experiment. Hours before I left the office another day, I received a "hurry up" text message from her because she was preparing a surprise. What could that be? Well, here it is... another flauta experiment, this time, with beef as filling and pan fried, unlike the deep fried Tuna Flautas she did the first time.
Ana Cristina, my younger daughter, went home late that night she didn't get to taste her share, so I wrapped the Beef Flautas for her lunch the following day. Guess what, I received a text message from her at lunch time, asking who made her lunch? She also loved it! (grrinnn) Now, it's with great certainty that flautas ---be it tuna, beef or chicken---will be a frequent dish at home.

Try it... you'll ask for more, promise!
