Prep

  1. Cheese (if not pre-shredded) - Grate or thinly slice. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  2. Prepare flautas - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven preheating first.) Cover tortillas with a wet paper towel and microwave for 30 to 60 seconds, until the tortillas are softened and pliable. Mix oil with chili powder (portions for flautas). Spoon ~3 Tbsps / 45 g of refried beans on bottom-third of each tortilla. Top with ~1 Tbsp / 15 g of shredded cheese and roll up tightly. Brush with oil mixture and place seam side down onto a sheet pan. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. When oven is done preheating, bake flautas for 10 to 12 minutes.

  3. While flautas bake, heat a wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil (portion for green beans) and then green beans and saute for 1 minute. Add stock and cover with a lid. Steam until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.

  4. Stir in chili powder (portion for green beans) and some salt. Continue cooking green beans until liquid has cooked off and green beans start browning in spots, 2 to 3 minutes more.

  5. Squeeze lime juice over green beans.

  6. Slice avocado and enjoy flautas with salsa and avocado on top and green beans on the side.
