Spinach and mushroom are a classic veggie filling for so many things, like your classic omelet, but these flautas really make the earthy spinach and umami mushrooms sing together. Two cheeses, cheddar inside and queso fresco outside, make their own unique harmony. Chipotle mayonnaise drizzled over, fresh tomatoes on top… this is almost too much “music” for one delicious dinner.
