A note about serious food allergies

What's the best filling for flautas? (And can it possibly be alliterative, like all good things are?) Chicken is chic, vegetables very fine, but the best stuffer is the succulent stuff that starts with "s:" steak, steak, and steak. This guy not only has steak, but slightly spicy poblano pepper and onion, filling those rolled tortillas to perfection. Steak is simply the best.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Crema

    Halve and juice lime.

    Stem and mince cilantro.

    Halve and peel onion. Cut into 1/4" dice.

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut poblano into 1/2" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot.

    In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, cilantro, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.

    Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Coarsely chop.

  2. 2

    Cook the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add steak strips, poblano, onion, and half the seasoning rub (reserve remaining for sauce) to hot pan. Stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Filling

    Stir tomato sauce and remaining seasoning rub into hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Assemble the Flautas

    Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Divide shredded cheese evenly between tortillas. Top cheese with filling.

    Fold tortilla over filling, then roll tortilla. Place seam-side down.

    Repeat with remaining tortillas. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Cook Flautas and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook steak strips to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add flautas to hot pan, seam-side down. Cook until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes.

    Gently roll to the opposite side and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing flautas with crema. Bon appétit!
