A note about serious food allergies
We've all had the joy of the frozen dollar burrito, microwaved until just hot enough and then wolfed down to stave off starvation. This meal is that, but, let's say, 10 billion times better. Lentils are combined with spinach, garlic, chipotle seasoning, and gooey cheese and rolled in tortillas to make flautas. Crisped in a pan and topped with a tomato-y salsa (you can't get that in the frozen food aisle!), you'll never go back to your late-night snacks again.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Meat lovers! If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and season with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Cook with 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat until browned and chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side. If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally with 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes. If using ground pork, combine with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Cook with 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Break into small pieces with a spoon until no pink remains, 5-7 minutes. Top flautas with proteins, or serve on the side.
Cook the Lentils
Bring lentils and ¾ cup water to a boil in a medium pot.
Reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook until lentils are tender and water is absorbed, 7-9 minutes.
Don't worry if lentils are mushy; they will be mashed in a later step.
While lentils cook, prepare ingredients.
Prepare Ingredients and Make Salsa
Core tomato and cut into ¼" dice.
Coarsely chop spinach.
Stem jalapeño, halve, seed, remove ribs, and mince. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.
In a mixing bowl, combine tomato, jalapeño (to taste), and ¼ tsp. salt. Set aside.
Make the Filling
Once lentils are finished cooking, increase heat to medium and add spinach, garlic, chipotle seasoning, and ¼ tsp. salt. If pot is completely dry, add 1 Tbsp. water.
Stir occasionally until spinach is wilted, 3-5 minutes.
Lentils will mash as ingredients combine.
Remove from burner and stir in mozzarella.
Roll the Flautas
To make tortillas more pliable, wrap in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30 seconds.
Lay tortillas on a clean work surface. Divide filling equally in the center of each tortilla.
Roll tortillas and place seam-side down.
Fry Flautas and Finish Dish
Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Working in batches if necessary, add flautas to hot pan, seam-side down. Cook until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes.
Gently roll to opposite side and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes. Replenish olive oil if necessary.
Remove from burner.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with sour cream, queso fresco (crumbling if necessary), and salsa. Bon appétit!
