Sweet Corn and Jalapeno Baked Flautas | Thug Kitchen

Photography Credit: Ashlee Harvey
Apologies for the wait! I’m so ready to tell you about my experience making flautas.
I want to start by saying that I was supposed to use green chile instead of jalapenos. Bath cans were stacked right next to each other on the shelf in Rouses. Since I was already home by the time I realized my mistake, I just went with it.
Flautus were so fun to make! Especially since I had another chance to cook with such simple produce: onions, garlic, tomatoes, lime and a few other canned ingredients. The funniest part of making the filling of the flautas was when I remembered that I forgot to buy a potato masher to mash the bean filling. I had to get a little creative. I used the empty can of jalapenos after I mixed the contents into the bowl of filling.
This experience reinforces the notion of cooking for enjoyment and not for perfect. If you won’t allow yourself to be open-minded in the kitchen and have fun, eating the finished product (the meal) isn’t as satisfying in my opinion.
If you watch my instastories on Instagram, you probably know that I tend to stray a little from the recipe I’m following to match my own preferences. Besides the few instances mentioned above, I pretty much followed the recipe as it was stated. I made sure to pre-heat the oven before I started to cook. It may seem like a simple step, but it makes cooking go by way faster. By the time you chop the 1/2 onion and garlic and sauteed it with the chili powder, cumin, and salt,  then mash the pinto beans, corn, lime juice and jalapeno together. The oven should be pre-heated. BUT don’t forget to add and mix the sauteed onions to bowl.
The filling for the meal was so good. I couldn’t help but to several spoonfuls of it! Eventually, I was able to concentrate and add the filling to the tortilla then roll it nice and tight from left to right. My advice while making dishes that you aren’t familiar with or you don’t possess all the necessary tools is to not to allow yourself to get your hands dirty while cooking. Use whatever you have laying around in your kitchen and get it done.
It is not worth stressing over what you don’t have or the mistakes you may have made. You must be willing to laugh at yourself and make due with what you have. The art of cooking is not about the aesthetics of cooking,  it is about taking control of your health, both mental and physical health. You gain mental health by knowing you are doing what you can to enjoy your life. And you gain physical health by the ingredients you choose. 
With that being said, I also chose to make homemade fire-roasted salsa. I had gotten tired of using canned produce so I bought fresh tomatoes and roasted them myself. After all the ingredients were chopped and blended together, I was satisfied with my product. But I do wish I had used more tomatoes and less onion.
