"These Guayaba Cheesecake Flautas are inspired by my Mexican-American heritage. I grew up with a bi-cultural family in Mexico City, and guayabas are very traditional this time of year. This recipe reminds me of my childhood growing up in Mexico with guayabas and Ponche Navideño. The cheesecake filling, salted caramel, spices, pomegranates, and guayabas become the best combination of flavors of Mexico and the United States." - @chefvanessamusi In the season of remembrance, we were so grateful to spend time in the kitchen with Chef Vanessa talking about nostalgic holiday recipes! The holidays can bring back memories of home, loved ones, and childhood, but one thing we always remember is the delicious food! We believe food is one extra special way to remember and connect with loved ones near, far, and those who are always in our hearts.
You know what they say, “The best things in life come with cheese!” ... Right? Well, we like to think so! A few of life's best cheesy things: macaroni, cheeseburgers, pizza, grilled cheese sandwiches, and our favorite—quesadillas. Make it a Breakfast Quesadilla with Dairy Free Nacho Cashew Queso, eggs, and your favorite protein, you’ve got yourself a delightfully cheesy dish to kick off your day!
We like to joke that once our Grain Free Tortillas are heated, they’re ready to “wrap ‘n roll,” like the punchline of dad joke from the eighties. Only, it’s really not a joke! Whether you’re craving spring rolls, egg rolls, pizza rolls, or pita wraps, our tortillas are ready to rise to the occasion. Or, if you’re in the mood to fold instead of roll, try making sweet or savory crepes!
Looking to add a little crunch to your lunch? Follow-up question: how much crunch would you bread your lunch-munch if a lunch-munch could crunch-crunch? No matter how you answered, if this sounds like something you’d want to add to your fish, chicken, tomatillos, or cauliflower to make a delicious “breaded” version, simply bake our Grain Free Tortillas, crumble into a texture and size of your choosing, and coat!
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.
When it comes to baked treats and foods you can make with Grain Free Tortillas, there’s so many to pick from, it can be hard to decide. We're here to say, "DOUGH not fear!" Because we've got a serving-suggestion to help you decide: sub in our tortillas as a ready-made, gluten free dough for baking treats like pop-torts and savory empanadas.
