We’ve always loved carnitas, and we’ve always (always!) loved flautas. Inspired by the way our Grandma Campos created many carnitas-style dishes, and golden-standard flautas, we thought, why not combine the two? Better yet, we wanted to make it vegan so that everyone can enjoy the savory flavors of carnitas rolled up in a crunchy tortilla! We hope this Spaghetti Squash Carnitas Flautas recipe brings you and yours together and makes everyone feel welcome and included at the table.
At just about any restaurant in our hometown, Laredo, you’ll find these enchiladas on the menu. Enchiladas suizas are usually filled with chicken and topped with a tomatillo and crema based salsa, and generous topping of grated cheese. We hope you enjoy our dairy free take on this staple dish—a dish that always takes us back to restaurants back home, and reminds us of gathering for a meal with family.
We’re gazing into our magic meatball, and we’re seeing your dinner will be a breeze! What else do we see? Our Whole30 Spicy Taco Seasoning, Red Enchilada Sauce, grass-fed ground beef, dry basil, and oregano. Ahh—it’s all much clearer now. We see your very own Spicy Meatballs! This simple and delicious recipe is so magical that you can pair it with roasted potatoes like us, leafy greens, or even pasta of your choice!
