A food, commonly served in Hispanic kitchens that is similar to a burrito. A corn tortilla is used as a food wrap to hold contents such as shredded beef, poultry, pork, fish, vegetables, or other ingredients seasoned with spices, and then baked, broiled, or deep fried into a crispy texture. The term flauta, which means "flute" in Spanish, denotes the manner in which the tortilla is tightly rolled around the savory contents, making a narrow cylindrical-shaped food that can be easily fried in a skillet with oil or baked with other flautas. When served, the flautas are traditionally garnished with sour cream or cream and may also be served with guacamole, lettuce and other toppings.
