  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained
  • 1 cup (shredded) cheddar cheese, reduced-fat
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles
  • 2 teaspoons Skinny Ms. Taco Seasoning, (or 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 black pepper, Kosher or sea salt to taste)
  • 10 (8-inch) whole wheat flour tortillas, (recipe for Homemade Tortillas)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add black beans, cheese, green chiles and spices to a medium mixing bowl. Use a fork and mash all ingredients together.
  3. Evenly divide mixture onto tortillas. Spread mixture over each tortilla, roll tightly, lightly spray each side with non-stick cooking spray or brush with olive oil, and place seam side down on parchment lined cookie sheet or non-stick baking dish. Don't allow flautas to touch so that they get crispy on all sides.
  4. Bake approximately 24-25 minutes, or until flautas are hot and crispy, turn over after 12 minutes of cooking time. If desired, top flautas with either fat-free Greek yogurt or reduced-fat sour cream.
  5. Check out our recipe for Guacamole Verde or Tex-Mex Salsa, both are yummy dips for Skinny Flautas.

    Can you freeze these? If so, do you freeze them before they are cooked or after?

      I never had. I'm not sure the tortillas would hold up when thawed. Keep us posted if you try it. 🙂

    I don't know about these, but we freeze enchiladas all the time, so I know the tortilla would not be an issue!
